Lighter products give greater energy efficiency
The area of lightweight covers both material and design technology and gives solutions for lighter products, which in turn lead to lower resources requirement and greater energy efficiency.
A Swedish area of strength
The lightweight field is an area of strength for Sweden, with its strong metals industry and high number of globally successful companies within the aerospace and automotive industries. Sweden's capacity to develop world leading expertise within the lightweight field contributes to industry's competitiveness and make the national mobilisation for lightweight necessary.
The programme is run by Lighter
The programme is run by Lighter, a national and cross-industry lightweight arena, where organisations collaborate to develop technologies, test environments and personnel.
The programme is aimed at objectives within the environment, growth and innovation efficiency through competence development and that Swedish products successfully reach the end customer. The aim is to achieve halving of weight, cost and development time through investment in research, competence development and test and demo.
