LIGHTer International Conference 2019

Welcome to

LIGHTer International Conference 2019!

This is where great innovative minds meet, focused on the mission to solve big environmental problems by creating lightweight solutions.

The two-day conference is filled with crispy fresh technology results from world-leading researchers, and the best companies putting it into the market. Every two years the Swedish strategic innovation program LIGHTer creates a mutli-sectorial lightweight arena, welcoming you from industry, academy, research institutes and trade organisations to a smörgåsbord of partnership possibilities and inspirational news.

The 2019 edition

In the dynamic conference centre of the Chalmers University of Technology, our days will be filled with engaging sections. Acknowledged speakers will be presenting industrial lightweight priorities and trends within various industrial sectors. Parallel workshops will be held by the forefronters of lightweight research. Individual matchmaking sessions will give you and your possible future key player room to explore opportunities. The exquisite evening dinner will create a savoury bridge between day 1 and day 2, and the dashing LIGHTer After Conference will leave us all uplifted and prepared to continue our lightweight journey back home. 

The four workshop themes of the Conference are based on LIGHTer´s four innovation themes: 

  • 50% lighter with lower costs
  • 50% lighter with shorter development times
  • 50% lighter using mixed materials
  • 50% lighter through improved properties & innovative solution

See you there!
