Welcome to LIGHTer                
LIGHTer is a leading multi-sectorial lightweight arena, that effectively creates competitiveness on behalf of Swedish industry

We have a short movie on YouTube, about the value of lightweight and LIGHTer.

Over 100 major organisations within manufacturing, the service industry, universities, colleges and research institutes have been working jointly to design a roadmap for lightweight technology for the next 20 years. The roadmap describes how Sweden must pool its strengths to develop lighter products and solutions within the automotive, aviation, marine, energy industries and engineering, construction, infrastructure, materials etc.

The lightweight agenda focuses on how we increase Swedish competitiveness and tackle the most important challenges facing society. It is about future growth and it is about Swedish jobs.

We also have a large and long-term strategic innovation programme for lightweight technology (Lightweight Innovation Programme), which is based on the lightweight agenda. Funding for the programme is being provided by Vinnova, the Swedish Energy Agency and Formas.
