LIFT: Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow

LIFT: Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow

LIFT Off Webinar Series

Innovation is at the heart of manufacturing. Often that innovation comes from startups or small companies that have a new idea on how to make something or an innovative process for creating something new.

At LIFT and the Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center, our missions are aligned to support those companies and help their innovations flourish and find a foothold in the marketplace. With that goal in mind, we are proud to announce:

LIFT Off: A Lightweighting Technology Series for Small and Medium-sized Companies

Each month an SME will be featured and will discuss the lightweighting innovations they are working on. Please join us by registering below and checking out the list of upcoming speakers. If you have questions, or would like to be a speaker yourself, please click the Contact link to let us know.
