Welcome to the seminar "Lightweight Applications with Graphene" -  October 22, 2019

A joint call between LIGHTer and SIO Grafen in 2017 resulted in three R&D projects with the purpose of developing lightweight applications with graphene. The projects are now ready to present their results within three technical areas: electronics, high temperatures and multi functionality.

LIGHTer, SIO Grafen and Innovative Material Arena (IMA) together invite to a seminar presenting the exciting results from the three projects within the call. See programme below. Presentations will be held in English, whereas discussions and informal communications will be in the language of each participant's choice.

Date October 22, 2019
Venue Skylten, Södra Oskarsgatan 3, Linköping


LIGHTer is a Swedish national arena for lightweight innovations. Within LIGHTer, there is a Strategic Innovation Programme (SIP) called SIP Lightweight.

SIO Grafen is a Swedish Strategic Innovation Programme with the aim of making Swedish companies world leading in industrial applications using graphene.

Innovative Materials Arena (IMA) is an arena stimulating research, innovation and growth within advanced materials in Östergötland.
