Lightweight Innovation Programme

Reference number
Coordinator Swerea AB
Funding from Vinnova SEK 9 600 000
Project duration December 2013 - September 2017
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

During stage 1, SIP Lightweight has established a Swedish cross-industry lightweight arena. The goal is to meet global climate goals and create jobs in Sweden. By working with many different industrial sectors, we create innovation efficiency. The Lightweight Agenda describes the focus of SIP Lightweight. All our seven innovation mechanisms have started. Over 300 unique organizations have participated in our activities. Eight workshops have been held and the first international multi-sectorial lightweight conference.

Expected effects and result

The results are presented in Appendix 3. In Appendices 1 and 2, there are Annual Reports for 2014 and 2016. The Annual Report for 2015 was too large for uploading on the portal. The fulfillment of our goals is good. The interest in lightweight solutions in both industry and the research community is growing and well spread across Sweden. Over 70% of our industrial stakeholders are small or medium-sized companies. Together with our international contacts, we want to establish LIGHTer internationally in the coming three years.

Planned approach and implementation

The Lightweight Agenda is the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda for Lightweight, which was written in 2013. It has worked well as a strategy document for SIP Lightweight. We have updated it in the autumn of 2016 based on a comprehensive global analysis. No major changes to the roadmap itself were made. Our four innovation themes and seven innovation mechanisms work well. We have carried out a self-assessment and have been evaluated by Vinnova in 2016 based on the roadmap. The result was positive and we feel stronger when we go into Stage 2.
