caper logoCAPER – Collaborative information, Acquisition, Processing, Exploitation and Reporting for the prevention of organised crime

The goal of the CAPER project is to create a common platform for the prevention of organised crime through sharing, exploitation and analysis of Open and private information sources.

The CAPER project is supported by the European Commission through the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development with up to 5.6 Mio €, out of a total budget of 7.1 Mio €. This 3-year project has been running since 1st July 2012.

MUPROD logoMuProD – Real multi data and knowledge based proactive quality control system for in-process multi-stage defect reduction

This project aims at developing an innovative Quality Control System that will drastically change the current concept of End Of Line quality control, going beyond currently established methodologies such as Six-sigma and SPC. It will prevent the generation of defects within the process at single stage and the propagation of defects between processes at multi-stage system level. This Quality Control System will be proactive, offering three different solution strategies to avoid End of Line defects. 

European Union 7th Framework Programme
