EMMC, in collaboration with the MODENA project (http://modena.units.it/), has coordinated the organisation of a CEN Workshop on materials modelling terminology, classification and metadata. The kick-off meeting will take place on January 17-18, 2017 in Brussels. A common terminology in materials modelling should lead to simplified and much more efficient communication and lower the barrier to utilising materials modelling. The end result is the adoption of a CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA), a best practices document for further standardisation efforts and input for the development of a future certification scheme.
More information about the workshop and how to get involved can be found directly on the CEN website under the following link: http://www.cen.eu/News/Workshops/Pages/WS_2016-013.aspx
Version 6 of the Review of Materials Modelling (RoMM 6) is now published on the bookshop website of the EC.
Based on the analyses of modelling done in projects in the H2020 and via numerous discussions with the field, this review aims to define the necessary concepts and to classify them.
This Review proposes names for these concepts which harmonise the language of modelling subfields.
The common language is hoped to foster dialogue and mutual understanding between industrial end-users, software developers and theoreticians. This common language can in the future form the basis for an ontology with a formal language of materials modelling and a definition of the relation between the concepts.
Such an ontology can then be a basis for metadata development necessary for a Modelling Market Place.
The scope and achievements of the modelling in 36 projects are presented with this harmonised language.
For a review of modelling in 100 projects funded in the 7th Framework Programme (2007-2013) by the NMP Programme we refer to the fifth version of this Review.
European Materials Modelling Council (EMMC), a European network to coordinate the integration of materials modelling activities in Europe and support industrial uptake, is organising the

The EMMC is the Backbone of Materials Modelling Activities in Europe
Modelling is a key pillar underpinning the development of new materials and products responding to societal needs and challenges and for ensuring competitiveness of European industry in the 21st century. In order to integrate, coordinate and enhance their activities, a wide range of European stakeholders including manufacturing industries, software owners and academic modellers formed the European Materials Modelling Council (EMMC) in February 2014 as a bottom-up action. The EMMC enjoyed wide community support from all stakeholders including substantial participation of numerous Small and Medium as well as Large European Enterprises.
A New European Network to Coordinate and Support the Industrial Uptake of Materials Modelling in Europe
Now, in recognition of the importance of materials modelling for industrial innovation and the strength of Europe, a new Horizon 2020 project has been funded to augment and further boost the actions of the EMMC. The new European Materials Modelling Council Coordination and Support Action (EMMC-CSA) includes 15 partners and is coordinated by TU Wien.
The EMMC-CSA will strengthen the EMMC and increase its engagement with the European community
EMMC-CSA stems directly out of the actions of the EMMC. It will continue and build upon its existing activities and charters and maintain and strengthen the EMMC as a bottom up action open to all stakeholders. The project organises EMMC workshops to collect and compile input from all stakeholders on the future needs and directions of materials modelling in Europe. The EMMC-CSA support setting a common direction among stakeholders in all areas including model development, interoperability and metadata, best practices for business decision support tools and articulating economic and business impacts.
The kick-off meeting of the EMMC-CSA was hosted by Fraunhofer IWM in the Fraunhofer office in Brussel on 26th and 27th of September 2016.
Abstracts are invited for submission by 7th May 2016 to the CECAM Workshop on Multiscale Simulation: from Materials through to Industrial Usage to be held in Dublin, Ireland from 5 to 7 September 2016: http://www.cecam.org/workshop-0-1255.html.
This is a workshop organised by the EMMC and the cluster of 5+1, also known as the European Multiscale cluster (EuMC), see more information on http://www.goldbeck-consulting.com/home.html/27120/25020.html.
Submissions are particularly encouraged highlighting challenges and success in the integration of simulation tools working at different length and/or time scales within open simulation platforms. The meeting features a Plugfest and also oral and poster contributions. Abstracts that demonstrate the development and/or application of multi-scale simulations are invited for contribution to the Plugfest and/or poster/oral sessions.
Abstract submission details can be found at http://www.nmp-deepen.eu/cecam-submissions.

The EMMC started an open survey to collect views on what materials modelling developments are required in order to respond to the application needs of the European industry. The inputs collected via this survey will lay the groundwork for elaboration of the EMMC RoadMap 2018-2020, a process which will start during a meeting in Brussels on 20th May 2016, with participation (by invitation) of many active survey contributors.
The Open survey can be accessed under this link: https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/EMMC-materials-modelling-development
The 2nd International Workshop on Software Solutions in ICME organized by the ICMEg consortium will take place in Barcelona from April 12th to April 15th. More than 100 experts from all over the world will discuss on “interoperability” in ICME type simulation settings. More: http://congress.cimne.com/icme2016/frontal/default.asp.
In this open survey you are invited to provide your views on what materials modelling developments are required in order to respond to the application needs of the European industry. The inputs collected via this survey will lay the groundwork for elaboration of the EMMC RoadMap 2018-2020, a process which will start during a meeting in Brussels on 20th May 2016, with participation (by invitation) of many active survey contributors.

More than 100 participants representing all stakeholders (manufacturers, modellers, translators) have attended the EMMC co-organised workshop on “Metadata and Interoperability in Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) and Multiscale Materials Modelling (MMM)” that was held on Thursday 10 March 2016, 09:20 – 17:00 h at Covent Garden Brussels. More information can be found here.
Another EMMC objective delivered: The first set of multi-scale, multi-model industrial case studies has been achieved and are available online directly on the EC website.
Based on intensive efforts in the 2014 and 2015 which included numerous consultation and networking actions with representatives of all stakeholders the EMMC identified and proposed a set of underpinning and enabling actions to increase the industrial exploitation of materials modelling in Europe. These are summarised in the EMMC RoadMap.
The EMMC seeks to update its RoadMap for Materials Modelling to propose new input and topics aimed at recommendations for the 2018-2020 NMBP Programme.
Therefore the EMMC has kicked-off a new networking exercise to collect feedback from all EMMC members.
This includes online discussions open to all members on the EMMC Collaborative Wiki: http://emmc.info/Roadmap17

Materials models are used extensively across the world and to make efficient use of the generated data, a way of categorising them should be developed and agreed: meta-data!
The EMMC invites all stakeholders to join the EMMC and participate in Drafting Metadata for Materials Modelling!
If you are already a member of the EMMC please get in touch with the OTM of any of the WGs to get involved.
If not a member yet, but you still whant to contribute, please follow the instructions in the Participation link to join the EMMC first!
As a first step we are collecting high level metadata both in textual and graphical simple descriptions. Please see the following two templates:
What could “participation to the European modelling market place initiatives” mean in practice?
What could “contribution to the EMMC (European Materials Modelling Council)” mean in practice?
In the Introduction to the LEIT WP 2016-2017 (page 6 of 114) it states “Proposers should consider participation in open data pilot (mandatory for modelling topics) and the European modelling market place initiatives (reference to the 2017 topic).”
Within the texts of NMBP-23-2016 (page 75 of 114) and NMBP-25-2017 (page 79 of 114) it states “Projects are expected to contribute actively to on-going activities e.g. in the EMMC (European Materials Modelling Council), and EU funded clusters.”
You can find more information on the bottom-up, non-funded European Materials Modelling Council EMMC on the website www.emmc.info.
On this website there is a Roadmap with a section on the Modelling Market Place initiative (There is an explicit reference to a modelling market place in topic NMBP-25-2017.)
Initiatives and activities are the elaboration and use of standards for vocabulary and classes of models, guidance on software engineering and metadata
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. Please see the document released by the EMMC for more information.
