A strategic programme for lightweight research and innovation
Since 2013, LIGHTer has served as a hub for Sweden’s development in the lightweight field. We are an industry-spanning, research and innovation initiative aimed at stimulating the development of lightweight technologies, processes, and materials.
Through networking, conferences, and calls for proposals, we enable collaboration between larger industries, small and medium-sized enterprises, innovation organizations, universities, and research institutes.

A circular approach
To secure the great potential of lightweight innovation, we take a circular perspective. In the circular value chain, the material of today’s lightweight products becomes resources in future solutions.
Each value chain actor integrates their respective value chains into a common circular value chain, where everyone takes the responsibility to create material, production processes and usage patterns that enable circularity. The effects are greatest when everyone takes lightweight into consideration already in the product development and design phase, whilst also considering the choice of business model.
Our international lightweight work
Internationalization is of great strategic relevance for LIGHTer. We actively participate in several international contexts around lightweight innovation.
Unique organizations have received funding since 2013. More are added continuously.
