Dear Reader,
It has been an exciting first part of the year. We have welcomed three new members in LIGHTer Academy Network, read more about one of them - Dr. Greta Lindwall - below. Our early call for projects resulted in 49 applications about different aspects of lightweight design.

We are happy to announce that the LIGHTer International Conference programme is now available. We would be honored if you would join us in beautiful Gothenburg in November! Read more about the conference below, don´t miss our early bird offer.

LIGHTer has been given the opportunity to host a lightweight symposium at EUROMAT 2019 in Stockholm on September 5. We hope to see you there!

Have a nice summer!

Best Regards,
Cecilia, Fredrik and Jasmine
