GAEU means...

GAEU (pronounced with a silent "e") means someone who is very good at what he does. The word GAEU is related to the English "good" and Spanish "guay", which have similar meanings. In China, "gau" means a high level.

- As a child I heard this word a few times. It was used mainly by older fishermen from the Swedish west coast in rare situations when they reluctantly were forced to comment positively about someone. They protected the word as if it was a valuable document from the bank office. Being "GAEU" is therefore a great honor, explains Roland Vilhelmsson.


More than 50% of our employees are PhD´s. All employees have practical knowledge and extensive experience in obtaining external financing for projects within innovation, research and development and international growth. We are a team focused on active problem solving and ambitiously pursuing our goals. All work is done in accordance with our Code of Conduct.
