Product optimization is a powerful tool in accelerating the development of Swedish lightweight technology, which in turn is key to producing energy-efficient, circular products with a minimum impact on our environment. However, optimization-driven product development has its challenges. These challenges will be addressed during this workshop .
How do we reduce product weight while shortening product development times? That is one of the core focuses of LIGHTer's industrially driven, cross-industry network "LIGHTer Product Optimization", now inviting you to a workshop on Topology Optimization - an important method in product optimization.
Topology optimization has long been used as one of the tools within the field of product optimization. However, the method is not as widespread as it could be due to a few challenges. How are topology optimization results properly transferred to a solid CAD geometry? How well does the academic curricluae meet the needs of the industry? How do we reduce the gap between academia and industry?
Join us on this lunch-to-lunch, technical workshop as we bring together topology optimization professionals to find answers to these challenges. We welcome users of topology optimization, software providers and academia for a forward-looking and broad dialogue.
We gather at RISE, Mölndal, for a joint lunch followed by the first workshop, before we summarize and re-unite again for a social dinner at the Orangery, Åby Arena. Day 2 gets off to a flying start with another workshop ending with a panel debate followed by a common lunch before we part.
We look forward to seeing you!
