DIY4U aims to develop and promote the adoption of collaborative production engineering approaches in the Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) sector; particulate and liquid FMCG like detergents, cosmetics, food, etc. DIY4U will use web-based portals to allow users to design their own products from home with a much broader range of performance attributes and then have these produced and delivered in a “designed for you” way. DIY4U will address the blockers of product customization and small-scale manufacturing by developing an Open Innovation (OI) digital B2B/B2C platform and small-scale automated manufacturing machines (Fablabs) for collaborative design and production of personalised/customized FMCG.
The project consortium comprises 6 industries and 7 research groups, representing 7 different EU countries. SINTEF is the Project Coordinator and leading two work packages; 'Project Management' and 'Open Innovation Projects & Competitions.
