Lightweight Membership programme

LIGHTer is a cross-industry lightweight arena aimed at strengthening competitiveness and creating sustainable growth for Swedish industry. The arena has two parts: the Strategic Innovation Program (SIP) LIGHTer and Lightweight Membership programme.

The use of lightweight constructions and materials is increasing in several industries. Lightweight often makes products cheaper to use and transport or easier to handle. Today we see the development of lightweight constructions in, for example, vehicles, aircraft, marine, workshop, construction, energy and infrastructure.

Lightweight also plays a major role in increasing efficiency and lowering the environmental impact – demands that have an ever-greater impact on competitiveness both locally and globally.

Two parts – a whole

Lightweight Membership programme has over 70 members and offers valuable membership benefits in lightweight technology. RISE's lightweight arena LIGHTer consists of two main parts: the Strategic Innovation Program (SIP) LIGHTer and Lightweight Membership programme. Both are run by a board of directors and a management team with RISE as hosts.
