Sister Projects

i4Q is part of the 4ZDM cluster, the European initiative around the Factories of the Future Zero Defect Manufacturing priority which aims to promote the adoption of zero-defect production and quality control systems by industry.


i4Q’s sister projects funded under DT-FoF-11-2020/DT-FoF-10-2020 are InterQ, DAT4.ZERO, OPTIMAI and PeneloPe. A Common website gathering all projects is available here.


The PeneloPe Project

Closed-loop digital pipeline for a flexible and modular manufacturing of large components.

PENELOPE aims to develop a novel closed-loop digital pipeline. An end-to-end Digital Manufacturing solution, enabling a bidirectional dataflow for seamless integration across the entire manufacturing value chain.

The OPTIMAI project

The OPTIMAI project aims to create a new European industry ecosystem focused on innovative solutions to optimise production, reduce defects and improve quality to safeguard European industry for generations to come.


The OPTIMAI toolkit will be tested and validated in three selected pilot sites that cover a number of industrial domains: manufacturing of lifts (KLEEMANN, Greece), manufacturing of antennas (Televés, Spain) and assembly of microelectronics (Microchip Technology Caldicot Ltd, UK).


The InterQ project


The InterQ project aims to measure, predict, control and manage the quality of the manufactured products, manufacturing processes and gathered data to assure Zero-Defect-Manufacturing through all the value chain.


It proposes a new generation of digital solutions based on intelligent systems, hybrid digital twins and AI-driven optimization tools, powered with meaningful and reliable data, to assure the quality in smart factories in a holistic manner.

The DAT4.ZERO project

DAT4.ᴢᴇʀᴏ is a project supported by the European Union. The project has 20 European partners who will work to improve quality in European factories.


Innovative technologies will gather and analyse data from manufacturing processes and give businesses greater control of what happens during production.
