LIGHTer is a leading multi-sectorial lightweight arena, that effectively creates competitiveness on behalf of Swedish industry. LIGHTer Membership programme  invites you to LIGHTer International Conference 2017 in Gothenburg, Sweden. The main theme of the conference is ”Future lightweight solutions for multi-sectorial industrial use”.

A new generation of lightweight solutions will need to combine the development of materials, processes and design in an integrated way. Several industrial sectors face the same challenges.

Research groups need to work with a common focus and chains of collaboration need to be strengthened at all levels – between industrial sectors, between OEMs and their suppliers, between institutes and universities, and between authorities and stakeholders within the field.


Gothenburg is the heart of western Sweden where leading lightweight products such as cars, trucks, aircraft engines, marine vessels, offshore- and shipping equipments are produced. The conference venue will be Arken Hotel & Art Garden Spa in Gothenburg.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the conference!
