  Clustering The white’R consortium participated, on March 2014, to the impact workshop organized by the European Commission in the area of Mantain / Repair / Re-use / Adapt. In that occasion white’R clustered with seven other projects from the same area: I-MAN, Power-OM, EASE-R3, T-REX, SelSus, Reborn and SUPREME. All the clustered projects have in common the objective to increase the availability of production systems & OEE; to reduce the energy consumption and the renovation and repair costs; to take into account the entire life cycle of machines and products, with particular attention to the middle-of-life and end-of-life stages towards a 100% reuse of production system components, focusing on modular equipment when setting-up production systems for new product variants. The clustering action succeeded in sharing knowledge among clustered projects, easing dissemination activities, creating awareness among the consortium by informing about activities, goals and results of other projects in the same area and creating opportunities of further collaboration.
  Spin-offs/Start-ups - Prima Electro invested in 2014 in the first Italian diodes fab for high power laser applications. It is important to stress how the results of White’R project are strictly connected to this initiative, both for the opportunity to dedicate the experience of the diode fab group to the project and the possibility to host the final first prototype of the White’R cell. Thanks to White’R project it was possible to increase the diode fab value, supporting the activities and implementing the new ones; nevertheless lot of people where dedicated to the work as new personnel.

  Clustering As part of its dissemination and exploitation strategy, the VISTRA project understands itself as a platform for international exchange and collaboration in research and development of virtual training and simulation tools and advanced manufacturing methodologies.

The project and its partners are engaged in several research networks and initiatives, collaborate with other research projects and support the development of strategies for future research, development and innovation.


Know4Car is an internet-based collaborative platform for managing manufacturing knowledge. The two EU-FP7 projects Know4Car and VISTRA have identified potential synergies and points of contact in the area of industrial assembly training for operators. For this reason both projects agreed on a collaborative relationship and a mutual exchange of experiences and outcomes during the complete project period. An annual consultation meeting of the VISTRA and the Know4Car consortia is considered to actively support this cooperation.
  International cooperation Intelligent Manufacturing System

The VISTRA-IMS initiative arises from the EU-FP7 project VISTRA as part of the Intelligent Manufacturing Systems (IMS) program in the area of Innovation, Competence Development and Education. Whereas VISTRA-FP7 mainly focuses on the technological development of an advanced VR training setup for the automotive industry, VISTRA-IMS extends the scope of VISTRA-FP7 by new application areas, by more generic training, learning and assistance concepts and by international dissemination and exploitation activities.

  International cooperation Cooperation with Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics with respect to organization of Isogeometric Analysis related mini-symposia at SIAM conferences. Cooperation with ICES at the University of Texas at Austin with respect to the organization of the first international conferences on Isogeometric analysis.
  Standardisation - TERRIFIC has proposed extensions to ISO 10303 (STEP) with respect to IGA and the locally refined splines, thus simplifying industrial deployment of IGA and future exchange of IGA-models and results. The work towards standardization in WP5 now follows the time line of the ongoing revisions of ISO 10303 STEP. In year 3 (September 2013-Augsut 2014) the STEP standards ISO 10303-42, 50 and 52 were updated with the isogeometry data model concepts specified by TERRIFIC. The objective is to define a standard for the representation of isogeometric data before engineering applications invent a variety of proprietary formats. The subsequent international ballot of these updates as part of the ISO 10303 STEP Module and Resource Library (SMRL) Change Request 10 concluded positively in April 2014; see document “SC 4 N2930 SMRL CR10 validation ballot result”. ISO TC 184/SC 4/WG 21 is currently incorporating the change request into the emerging version 6 of the ISO 10303 SMRL, which is a standard publicly available from ISO.

  Clustering Resilient Production Networks Cluster

Together with the FLEXINET and ManSYS (FP7 projects) the Resilient Production Networks cluster is starting to be created. In the next phase, an other projects will be invitaed to join.

In the vision created, a Resilient Production Network supports:
(1) the co-evolution of products, services and production technology, through their ability to adapt the network configuration to change as a matter of routine;
(2) innovation by exploiting their flexibility and enabling them to encourage disruptive change;
3) the integration of systems flexibly across changing network configurations.

The primary objectives of this cluster are:
1. Bring together FP 7 and H2020 FoF projects focused on methods, tools, services, applications and platforms for strategic, tactical, operational and process support for Resilient Production Networks;
2. Offer synergies in project exploitation
3. Provide opportunities for integration and harmonisation of results
4. Promotion of future calls for proposals for research relevant to Resilient Production Networks.

The Resilient Production Networks cluster will be formally presented during the Impact Workshop organized by the European Commission to be held in Brussels between the 29th and 30st of April in Brussels.
