About LightMe

Lightweight materials have become increasingly critical for producing components for aircrafts, cars, trains, ships, defence equipment and consumer goods.

Especially, lightweight metal and alloys possess high strength-to-weight ratios and low density. Common applications are met in the automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, railway and other large niche applications.

LightMe Objectives

The LightMe project aspires to be a point of reference for boosting innovation in the field
of lightweight metal matrix nanocomposites (MMnC) setting up an Open Innovation Ecosystem (test bed)
that will boost the introduction of new functionalities, features and capabilities to lightweight metals.
