Strategic Research Area No.1 Modelling - Phase II

Reference number
Coordinator Luleå tekniska universitet - Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik
Funding from Vinnova SEK 15 466 315
Project duration November 2014 - June 2017
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

LIGHTer (ligtherarena.se) effectively creates competitiveness for Swedish industry. It promotes development of technology and people with multidisciplinary competencies to create products with low weight. The area ‘Modelling’ is a sustainable, national network of researchers from academia, research institutes and industry where interdisciplinary research is exercised. The goal is to become a world leading multidisciplinary research cluster in modelling enabling innovative lightweight solutions and services.

Expected results and effects

The project has ten specific results contributing to several of LIGHTer’s effects for 2033 like increasing the number of persons with lightweight competence, a new structure for research and innovation, mobility between industry/academia/institutes and increasing lightweight innovations. The first of the ten goals is the cluster itself where new, national and international collaborations have been established. The cluster has created further projects, scientific publications according to formulated key performance indicators.

Planned approach and implementation

The research is performed at lower TRL levels with clear future applications. The model development required mixed competencies from modelling as well as characterisation concerning metals and composites. The cluster as a whole has had four seminars per year that have been important for creating new collaborations and knowledge dissemination. Specific project work around specific issues has been performed in subgroups. These applications have been set up so they are generic and pushes research forward.
