Laura’s passion for wind powered vessels
Alongside her whole professional career Laura Marimon Giovannetti, now a senior researcher at SSPA, has also been an elite athlete in sailing, representing Italy and then the British Sailing Team at World and European championships. Now she works actively for Swedish Olympic success!
- What we do is unique in Sweden, if not the world, says Petter Marcus who builds boats from scratch at SSPA. It's a little difficult to explain to friends and acquaintances what I do, because when you talk about model building, people think of toy models. The ones we build are 7-8 meters.
- The main theme in my job has to do with the enormous change the shipping industry is facing today, says Tobias Olsson, project manager at SSPA. My focus is on the environment and the cost of reducing emissions. In short, I am doing life cycle modeling.
We have a new owner! RISE, Research Institutes of Sweden, operates under similar conditions to SSPA with a combination of public and commercial research and development activities. For clients, partners, and colleagues this means business as usual. And greater potential. Stay tuned!
