LIGHTer PhD network will strengthen the education of PhD:s in disciplines relevant to lightweight in order to further enable major future technological leaps, e.g. through increased collaboration, broader perspectives on lightweight technologies and insight into several disciplines.
Already at the start of their studies, the PhD students are introduced to the LIGHTer network of researchers from universities and industry. They will also be given the opportunity for multi-disciplinary research collaboration. The network activities are covered by a joint course, national and international workshops, seminars and an annual PhD student conference that is coordinated with other LIGHTer activities. The goals for the activities within LIGHTer PhD network are to:
The project intends to further develop and proceed the ongoing activity cycle with a joint lightweight course, workshops, seminars, and PhD student conference for the PhD students in the network as well as two new PhD groups during the years 2021 and 2022. International collaboration within lightweight will be a focus area and annually core courses are offered within the network that are of relevance to lightweight technologies at Swedish universities, all in a format adapted for PhD students performing their studies at different locations.
