Our friend and devoted E-LASS member Tord Gustafsson has passed away. Tord played an instrumental part in the development of our European lightweight community, contributing his deep knowledge, creativity and huge amount of energy and passion for lightweight technology and materials. No matter who was on the other side of the table, Tord always managed to find a common ground and a connection, making him a beloved member of our network. He will be missed. Our condolences and thoughts goes to his family.
