Last week, on November 6th, we attended the yearly program conference for FFI next to our office at Lindholmen. FFI stands for "Fordonsstrategisk Forskning och Innovation" meaning "Strategic Vehicle Research and Innovation" funded by the state of Sweden.

In the morning we listened to interesting presentations about the funded research projects that are done in companies all over the country. We were also inspired by the presentation of professor Jan Bosch about how to innovate through software.

The afternoon was divided into 5 tracks. One take away from the Light-weight track was that LIGHTer has a focus on virtual methods, which we really support. In the track about Automated vehicles we can really see the need for good virtual vehicle models and driving simulators, areas where we are strong.

Altogether an interesting day, a melting pot of innovative ideas and energizing meetings.

We were bronze sponsors at 2014 International HEEDS User Conference.

At the conference experts and specialists from many countries got together to recognize, and focus on, the wide applications of optimization technology, and specifically optimization with HEEDS products, across all industries.
