Advice for LEIT proposers

EMMC Guidance for LEIT Proposers

thumbnail of RoMM_Version_6_KI0616197ENN.en_
Review of materials modelling Version 6

The EMMC strongly advises all LEIT proposers to adhere to the RoMM Language and the CEN Workshop Agreement “Materials modelling – terminology, classification and metadata wherever possible.

According to Horizon 2020 Work Programme (see section 7):

Where materials modelling is proposed, the relevant work packages should be described similarly to the Review of Material Modelling (RoMM).

If new software is developed, the software engineering quality should be covered.

Proposers are encouraged to contribute actively to ongoing activities, e.g. in the EMMC (European Materials Modelling Council), and EU funded clusters.

Additional Resources for Proposers

The CEN Workshop Agreement Materials modelling – terminology, classification and metadata provides additional resource to proper use of community driven standard for the documentation and description of materials modelling that adheres to the Review of Material Modelling (RoMM).

MODA PORTAL
Information, templates and examples of MODA workflows.

Moreover, not only the modelling objectives (the phenomena to be simulated) but also the modelling approach (the models and their input/output relation, i.e., the “workflows”) may be described using the MODA workflow.

EMMC guidance for software

Software engineering quality measures are recommended to be included in the proposed work plan. Please see the Software Quality Advice for Academics, a document released by the EMMC for more information. Software engineering quality measures should be taken as part of the proposed work plan.

EMMC guidance on data sharing

Huge amounts of data exist and large parts are non-confidential and could be of use to others. The EC and also the EMMC are developing ways to facilitate increased availability of this data. LEIT proposers are asked to consider participation in open data pilot (see open access to research data and data management plans in the general introduction to H2020 WP 2018-2020), EMMC ontology activities (www.emmc.info) and/or the European Marketplace initiative.

  • EMMC guidance for Description of Modelling
    According to the WP 2016-2017 Introduction click here! (see section 8), from 2016 onwards not only the modelling objectives (the phenomena to be simulated) but also the modelling approach (the models and their input/output relation, i.e., the “workflows”) will be subject to evaluation by modelling experts.

The modelling in proposals is expected to be documented following the vocabulary and classification of the RoMM click here! and the guidelines of the EMMC.

Industrial Advisory Board – IAB

Working group area for registered members only (log-in required)

The EMMC Industrial Advisory Board IAB is formed from members of the manufacturing stakeholder community. The role of the IAB is to guide the EMMC and ensure its industrial relevance.

The first task of the IAB was the evaluation and endorsement of the EMMC Roadmap for Materials that outlines a strategic future materials modelling policy for Europe.

The IAB will meet yearly and contribute to the next updates of the EMMC Roadmap. The full member list is here:

International Materials Modelling Board IM2B

International Material Modelling Board

The International Material Modelling Board IM2B acts as a channel for international collaboration with the EMMC. It is also the way to enable non-EU members to get involved in the EMMC actions.

If you are interested to join the IM2B, please contact the EMMC Operational Management Board (OMB) using the form at the end of this page.

Industrial Integration and Economic Impact Working Group

Working group area for registered members only (log-in required)

Materials modelling is considered as a European science and technology strength but needs far more implementation and use in industry to reap its full economic impact. The overall objective of the Industrial Integration and Economic Impact Working Group is to raise and measure the economic impact of materials modelling in industry. This entails complementing measures to other working groups for stimulating the use in large, medium and small enterprises and measuring the overall impact. It includes setting up an industrial user group to define and address materials modelling barriers, elaborate costs and benefits for adapting materials modelling in business decisions, and enhance the visibility of materials modelling overall.

 

Objectives

  1. Establish a forum for the European manufacturing industry to express their requirements for materials development and design, and associated materials modelling, with particular emphasis of engaging SMEs
  2. Coordinate future Business Decision Support System developments to facilitate their dissemination and maximize the potential benefits for the European manufacturing industry
  3. Clarify the costs and benefits of materials modelling by quantifying the economic impact for the European manufacturing industry
  4. Enhance the visibility of materials modelling capabilities for European manufacturing companies and associated stakeholder organisations (materials federations, interest groups and associations, governments, software vendors, academics, general public)
  5. Channel and organize feedback from user communities to commercial and academic software owners
