Light must become lighter

The need for lighter products is governed by the major global challenges facing us today. The world’s growing population must learn to share our planet’s finite resources while agreeing on effective environmental measures. Designing lighter products is an obvious and quick way to reduce demands on resources and increase energy efficiency, especially within the transport industry.

Over 100 major organisations within manufacturing, the service industry, universities, colleges and research institutes have been working jointly to design a roadmap for lightweight technology for the next 20 years. The roadmap describes how Sweden must pool its strengths to develop lighter products and solutions within automotive, aviation, marine, energy, engineering, construction infrastructure, materials etc.

The lightweight agenda is concerned with how we increase Swedish competitiveness and tackle the most important challenges facing society. It is about future growth and it is about Swedish jobs.
