Novel advanced materials solutions for affordable lightweight to meet automotive and aerospace makers’ needs

Interreg North West Europe Programme

 About the programme

RIGHTWEIGHT is an Interreg North-West Europe (NWE) project that will intensify the cooperation between the automotive and aerospace sectors for reaching environmental and affordability targets. The project will apply lightweight solutions to make transport greener. The environmental performance and affordability targets could be reached by leveraging the unique expertise of automotive and aerospace since each sector excels in one area where the other could learn from.

Cross-cutting areas within lightweight: 

For whom? 

In order for us to achieve our objectives, we want to involve two types of stakeholders:

RIGHTWEIGHT will create value by directly supporting SMEs as well as indirectly developing technological solutions to the challenges the champions are facing.

What support is being provided to SMEs?

There will be two competition rounds and we will classify selected SMEs into two types of winners, entitled to different levels of support. In total, around 20 SMEs with the best scoring solutions will be selected, referred to as Trailblazer SMEs. The next best 30 SMEs will be selected referred to as Follower SMEs.

The two types of SMEs will receive the following levels of support:

Our partners and field labs are located in different countries across North-West Europe and Italy. We combine the strengths of the regions in the automotive and/or aerospace sectors to offer the most relevant support to the SMEs admitted to the programme.
