Dear visitor, welcome to TRANSPARENCY project.

TRANSPARENCY is a European project co-financed under the scope of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission.


The vision of TRANSPARENCY is to enable European machine-tool builders to establish a knowledge-based collaboration with end users and component suppliers for machine tool design and operation. Ultimately, TRANSPARENCY allows involved actors to gain competitive advantages by permitting collaborative design and exchange of operational knowledge throughout the entire life cycle of the machine tool.



TRANSPARENCY Project completed!


After 3 years of work the TRANSPARENCY project got to its end. The results were presented during the final consortium meeting at partner FIDIA’s premises in San Mauro Torinense, Italy on September 24-25th 2013.

Also, you can obtain more technical details on some of the developed tools and components:

The consortium is elated to have received a very positive feedback on the project output, the implementation and future collaborations that came forth from TRANSPARENCY. TRANSPARENCY ideas and approaches will live on in recently approved European funded projects [click here] as well future collaborations of the involved partners. Therefore this website will be maintained to further provide you the background information on the TRANSPARENCY project. If you are interested in our follow-up activities, the new projects or if you have a great idea how to integrate the TRANSPARENCY approach in your work, we kindly invite you to get in touch with us! Don’t hesitate – we’re looking forward to hearing from you!
