Thank you for your interest in the 2018 Altair Enlighten Award

This year, we've added the "Future of Lightweighting category" reserved for innovative ideas, processes, materials and technologies that have significant potential to support lightweighting initiatives but have yet to be leveraged on a production vehicle platform. This category is open to incubator and startup companies, small-medium sized businesses, research and development institutions, universities and entrepreneurs alike.
