The aim of this project is to train 15 young researchers (ESRs) that will realize the next generation of European Industry 4.0-ready CT technology. The xCTing consortium consists of 9 beneficiaries and 6 partner organisations.

The unsolved trade-off between scan speed and scan quality, and the need for extensive expert user input, needed by Computed Tomography (CT),are the reasons for xCTing project to concentrate on increasing autonomy, robustness and speed in CT metrology. An interdisciplinary expertise, including physics, manufacturing, dimensional metrology, machine learning, efficient and reliable big data analytics and visualization is necessary to fulfil expectations. The young researchers can put together knowledge and enthusiasm both in research and entrepreneurial activity.
