EMMC Case Study DOW

EMMC and DOW present the CASE STUDY

Modelling Drop Impact Test of Flexible Pouches Made of Thin Polyethylene Films

Interview of Hein Koelman, Dow
Writers: Alexandra Simperler and Gerhard Goldbeck (Goldbeck Consulting)

The case is based on a market demand for novel and lightweight flexible food packaging replacing rigid forms of packaging, including rigid plastic, glass or metal. These “pouches” are indeed very lightweight and also do not take up much volume when disposed of. However, ….

EMMC workshop on Physics-based vs data-driven models

 

The EMMC workshop on “physics-based vs data-driven models”
was run inside the conference

“Multi-scale modelling (Coupling and linking) of materials and
molecules in the 21st century: Physics-based or data-driven?”

June 11-13, 2018 at the Ångström Laboratory of Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden

 

 

Report on the EMMC Workshop

thumbnail of EMMC-CSA-D1.6_M23_vfinal-PU-WEB

The conference had the purpose to bring together two scientific communities: the more traditional modelers using and developing physics-based methods and models and those applying and creating data-based informatics models now more and more rapidly entering into materials modelling. As they represent two different schools but still solving similar problems it created continuous debate on the pros and cons of both methods but also an agreement that they will both develop together and complement each other, especially, when more and more reliable data appear and become accessible to the community. The current status of data was a frequently touched topic; should all data be open to everybody or not? How should it be organized? Do we need ontologies? Also an open EMMC session was included to discuss this current report for the European Commission.

As far as we are aware, this was the first meeting of its kind anywhere, i.e. a meeting with exactly this focus. The interest from industry was significant with participation from DCS Computing, DSM (a Dutch multinational company in the fields of health, nutrition and materials), Goodyear Dunlop Tires Operations SA (Luxembourg), Virtual Lab (Korea), Granta design (UK), Materials Design S.A.R.L (France), Solvay S.A. (big chemical company, France), Swerea KIMAB AB, Unilever Research, ACCESS e.V., Dow Benelux B.V., Noruna AB. Still on the non-academic side, the following industry-active institutes were represented: Teknova AS (Norway), Korea Institute of Energy Research (KIER), Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST), Helmholtz-Zentrum Geestacht and more. There were over a hundred participants from 16 countries. The audience was composed of junior and senior experts in academia and in industry as well as software developers and translators. Specialised presentations as well as expert-talks of a more tutorial character were included. Every scientific session ended with a summary of the highlights raised by speakers and audience collected by the chair-persons.

EU Industry Days 2019 – Report on EMMC organised session “Data for Materials and Manufacturing”

 

EU Industry Days 2019 was held from 5-6 February 2019 in Brussels. The conference focused on key industrial challenges such as sustainability, digitalisation, investment and globalisation. The event aimed to demonstrate how EU industrial policy benefits European citizens and to provide input for future policy making. There were around 1,500 participants from across Europe and beyond, including stakeholders representing industry, trade unions, national and regional authorities, and civil society.

EMMC organised a Stakeholder Session “Data for Materials and Manufacturing”. The main question to answer was, how to increase European capacity to extract knowledge from materials and manufacturing data? A huge wealth of data remains untapped within silos, unused for impacting on innovation in materials and manufacturing. A strategic approach to digitalisation is required involving stakeholders from materials, manufacturing and digital technologies: an alliance pursuing the goal of a common semantic basis ensuring access to and interoperability of data.

EMMC Case Study Robert Bosch GmbH

 

EMMC and Robert Bosch GmbH present the CASE STUDY

Multi-length-scale modelling in ferroelectric Materials

Interview of Dr. Alexander Konstandin, BOSCH
Writers: Davide Di Stefano (Granta Design) and Gerhard Goldbeck (Goldbeck Consulting)

 

thumbnail of EMMC_BOSCH_case_study_finalThe case study is based on Bosch’s contribution to the German public funded project “Multi-length-scale modelling of ferroelectric materials”.

It was presented at the MRS Fall Meeting 2009 (Boston, USA) and the Multiscale Materials Modeling Conference MMM 2010 (Freiburg, Germany).
