Who is SARC?

SARC is a strategic collaboration of Swedish Universities and research organization conducting research and/or education within the aeronautics sector initiated by INNOVAIR and funded by VINNOVA. Official partners in the center are LiU and Chalmers, but SARC is open to any stakeholder within this field. SARC membership is free of charge. The SARC Center constitution was worked out by Prof. Dan Henningson (KTH/LiU), Prof. Tomas Grönstedt (Chalmers) and Prof. Petter Krus (LiU) in collaboration with Dr. Anders Blom from INNOVAIR. The three professors come from the largest universities within the NFFP7 research program and have partly also been chosen due to their merits and expertise gained within the Swedish-Brazilian collaboration program.
