Losing auto weight could land suppliers and automakers a new industry prize.

Altair Engineering Inc. is teaming up with the Center for Automotive Research to create the new Altair Enlighten Award. Troy, Mich.-based Altair and CAR, based in Ann Arbor, Mich., announced the new award during CAR’s Management Briefing Seminars in Traverse City Aug. 6, calling it the “first award program created specifically to acknowledge innovations” in auto lightweighting.
