Research & Development


End-to-end R&D solutions in Industry 4.0 and Logistics 4.0

I4byDesign contributes to the creation and implementation of technological solutions in the production processes, the supply chain as well as in the production and provision of products & services.

Indicatively, the Competence Center is developing ten (10) Industrial Research Products (IRPs). our action plan includes:

  • Emerging technologies scouting tool – Technology Scouting.
  • Industry 4.0 Maturity Assessment Tool.
  • Development of a Digital Twin to simulate a Company’s entire production line.
  • Integrated Tool for Logging and Detecting Cyber Attacks in Industrial Environments with Secure Sharing in Open Databases.
  • Flexible platform for rapid designing of Robotic Systems in Industrial Environments.
  • Integrated Administrative Environment for IoT (Internet of Things – IoT).
  • Application for Energy Saving in Industrial Environments.
  • Digital platform for designing and developing additive manufacturing products and services.
  • Tools for management, visibility support and control of processes and products control along supply chain.
  • AI toolbox for Industry 4.0.

The project I4byDesign is implemented under the National Action Plan: «COMPETENCE CENTERS» and is co-financed by the European Union and national resources through the OP. Competitiveness, Entrepreneurship & Innovation (EPANEK).

The project started in July 2021 and is expected to be completed in January 2023.

Scientific co-ordinator is Dr. Dimitrios Tzovaras from CERTH/ITI.
