Qu4lity is the biggest European project dedicated to Autonomous Qu4lity (AQ) and Zero Defect Manufacturing (ZDM) in the Industry 4.0. The project  will demonstrate, in a realistic, measurable and replicable way an open, certifiable and highly standardised, SME-friendly and transformative shared data-driven ZDM product and service model for Factory 4.0 through 14 pilot lines. QUALITY is one of the contributors to the SMI group of BDVA and involves a good number of BDVA members, among which Atos (coordinator), Siemens, Engineering, IDSA, Innovalia, Sintef, VTT or Fraunhofer, among others.

The QU4LITY project has launched an Open Call and we are looking for SMEs and MidCaps that may be interested in the field of Zero-Defect Manufacturing (ZDM) and Autonomous Quality (AQ). The deadline of this call has been extended until September 18.

This call meets two challenges:

  • ZDM pilots for SME/MidCap-manufacturers deploying the QU4LITY-paradigm within Autonomous Quality. These new pilots will consist of solutions provided to manufacturers, complementing the large-scale pilots within the QU4LITY-ecosystem.
      • Allocated Budget: €362,500 for the funding of 5 proposals (max budget: €72.500 per proposal)
  • The objective of this option is to expand the scope of existing digital platforms and pilots with new functionalities and features and address one challenge posed by Qu4lity pilots. The SMEs selected for funding will be given the opportunity to validate their solutions in the project’s experimental infrastructures and testbeds.
      • Allocated Budget: €225,000 for the funding of 3 proposals (max budget: €75.000 per proposal).
