SSPA becomes part of RISE
RISE, Research Institute of Sweden, and the Chalmers University of Technology Foundation have signed an agreement regarding the sale of SSPA to the Rise Group. The agreement confirms RISE’s acquisition of SSPA. RISE operates under similar conditions to SSPA, with a combination of public and commercial research and development activities, and has the expertise and client base that match SSPA in a way that is beneficial for the continued development of the business.
“The Chalmers Foundation wishes to focus more on the University’s core activities – research, education and utilisation, as well as creating the best possible future conditions for SSPA,” says Chalmers President and CEO Stefan Bengtsson. “Our judgement is that RISE offers the right organisational atmosphere to strengthen and further develop SSPA’s operations.”
Pia Sandvik, CEO of RISE, comments:
“I warmly welcome SSPA to RISE and look forward to following the development closely. SSPA conducts internationally recognised, high quality maritime research, and will be a strategically important reinforcement for RISE’s existing maritime operations.”
- I am happy that we can now start working together with RISE and develop their maritime division, says SSPA's CEO Stefan Eliasson. I am convinced that we will face a bright future!
