LIGHTer's Challenges

In our lightweight agenda, we address today's big societal challenges by steering towards goals within areas concerning growth, environment and innovation efficiency. But what is lightweight really, and how can lighter materials profit Swedish competetiveness?

To us, lightweight techniques makes it possible to reach political goals on national as well as global levels. 


Lightweight is part of the solution

The challenging environmental goals that the world's industry must fulfill is putting pressure on several strong development lines. Trends such as simulation, flexible manufacturing techniques and new biobased materials are all connected to light, more sustainable products. Even Sweden's strategy for new industrialisation puts focus on areas such as digitalisation, sustainable production, competence support and test beds, all of which are part of the process of providing new lightweight solutions.
