FIT4U (Framework of Integrated Technologies for User Centred Products) is a Collaborative Research Project funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme
FIT4U project aims at responding to the growing demand for consumer oriented product personalization by conceiving an Engineering Framework, meant as the set of tools and manufacturing technologies necessary to consumer centred product and process design and innovation in safety and sport footwear and accessories, particularly gloves.

Main results developed by the project are:

  • new technologies and devices for consumer virtual profile creation and product personalization;
  • innovative 3D integrated design tools and solutions dedicated to personalised consumer centred shoes and gloves ;
  • innovative high-performing materials.
  • new technologies for the fast production of differentiated lasts, footbeds and of new modular soles, and new process engineering tools based on lean production concepts.

FIT4U Project is coordinated by ITIA-CNR
