EMMC feat. the Virtual Materials Marketplace (VIMMP) Ontology Webinar

EMMC announces the start of the VIMMP webinar series, starting with the ontology work in the European project VIMMP – Virtual Materials Marketplace.
The semantic assets from VIMMP are developed in close coordination with the EMMC-CSA and MarketPlace projects and are intended to be of use to the EMMC and materials modelling community as a whole.

Thursday, May 23, 2019, 15.30 – 16.15 CEST (14.30 – 15.15 BST)

The webinar will be presented by Martin Horsch (STFC-12)


Semantic assets can facilitate the integration of diverse data and software components into a coherent framework, permitting different approaches and solutions to become interoperable. Ontologies are semantic assets that characterize objects (entities) and the possible relations between them. Read more …

EMMC-CSA, represented by Nadja Adamovic (TU Wien and EMMC-CSA coordinator) took part within the Workshop of Industrial Technologies Support Actions on April 4, 2019, organized by DG for Research & Innovation in Brussels.







This workshop was participated by up to 34 coordination and support actions funded in the NMBP part of Horizon 2020 and RFCS. The purpose of the workshop was to look at the output of the coordination and support actions in the area of industrial technologies, in order to make the most of this valuable resource; identify lessons learned; and show the way forward with regard to big issues, future funding and future policies.

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.

EC Workshop on “Industrial Commons as a Tool to Drive Innovation in Europe”

The EC DG Research & Innovation organised a workshop on “Industrial Commons as a Tool to Drive Innovation in Europe” on June 28, 2018 in Brussels.

European-funded R&I projects are cradles of innovation, producing large amounts of data that can be (re-)used. In this context, Industrial Commons may accelerate innovation and even spill over into complete new areas of the economy. Similar to traditional “commons”, e.g. land, water and air, goods that are used in common, Industrial Commons could mean R&D-derived knowledge, data, and capabilities shared across various industrial sectors. Industrial Commons potentially provide the means to take forward industrial project results and create new markets and new business models.

The EMMC was represented by Gerhard Goldbeck (Goldbeck Consulting) and Rudy Koopmans (Koopmans Consulting) gave a keynote speech on “The industrial perspective” within the session “Europe – A potential innovation powerhouse?”
