EMMC International Workshop 2019


The EMMC – the European Materials Modelling Council

is glad to announce the

EMMC International Workshop 2019

February 25-27, 2019

Vienna / Austria

The EMMC International Workshop 2019, has the goal to boost the networking of European and International stakeholders and to provide a communication platform across all stakeholder communities. It will support different type of stakeholders to provide their input on the future materials modelling.

The Workshop is an ‘invitation-only’ event for about 150 European and International Experts to discuss and contribute in setting a common direction among stakeholders in all areas of Materials Modelling

The EMMC International Workshop 2019 will provide a discussion platform for numerous stakeholders. The outcome of this event will be published on and  integrated within the EMMC Roadmap 2019.

Information on the last EMMC International Workshop 2017 is available here!

EMMC Workshop “Industrial view and needs for Translation”

DPI, a partner of the EMMC-CSA project, is organising a workshop on “Industrial view and needs for Translation” in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.


December 4, 2018 – 09:00 – 16:00 GMT


DPI office
Kennispoort, John F. Kennedylaan 2,
The Netherlands


The main idea of the workshop is to evaluate the translation concept and the role of the translator from the point of view of industry. Therefore, the participants are targeted to be industrial members that are either using or are interested to learn how to use modelling.  

The outcome from the discussions during the workshop will be used as recommendations towards relevant currently running EU projects and, via the EMMC Road Map updated with the feedback from the workshop, for giving direction to future projects/calls of the European Commission.

The event will combine keynote presentations, discussions, a matchmaking event, fish-bowls, world cafés and an exhibition on new industrial applications for research on Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Biotechnology and Advanced Manufacturing and Processing. Plenary sessions with great political impact on the industrial landscape will be followed by parallel sessions organised around three main pillars:

1) Technologies for sustainable growth
2) Innovative Industry for citizens
3) Ecosystem and framing conditions

Representatives of the EMMC will give presentations.

EMMC Industrial User Expert Meeting to Increase the Industrial Exploitation of Materials Modelling

On September 25, 2018 the EMMC is organising the “EMMC Industrial User Expert Meeting to increase the Industrial Exploitation of Materials Modelling”.


St John’s Innovation Centre
Cambridge CB4 0WS

Background & Objectives

The EMMC sees people, tools, process and data as the four pillars of a successful deployment of materials modelling in the industrial community. We will engage with participants in discussions to see how each of the pillars need to be strengthened in such a way to lead to a holistic solution for a deep and wide engagement of all involved stakeholders to make materials modelling a strong contender in industrial organisation. We are also aiming to find suggestions that may lead to a stable/established deployment of modelling in Industry.

EMMC Expert Meeting on Open source, free software and commercially supported software for materials modelling

Date – October 25-26, 2018

Venue – tba, Paris, France

One of the main objectives of the EMMC is increasing the use of materials modelling software in the European industry. As described in the attached document, the Paris meeting serves this objective by bringing together leading European software developers and stakeholders.

The expected contribution from the invited experts will be very short impulse talks (5-10 minutes) and participation in the following discussion.

The expected outcome of this Expert Meeting will be a report on the strengths and pitfalls of different models and recommendations to increase the impact of materials modelling in the European industry. This will be achieved by impulse talks by leaders in the field and by focused discussions.

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?”

Agenda & Workshop report are available on the event page!

EC Workshop on “Materials Ontology”

EC DG RTD organised a workshop for a large number of stakeholders to discuss Materials Ontologies. A wide range of experts found in the EC expert database were invited to send input in the form of three slides. Each expert who sent in input was invited to the meeting.  Some 130 people expressed an interest and 73 experts from 15 countries got together for a full day of presentations and discussions.

EMMC co-organised this event and and was represented by Alexandra Simperler (Goldbeck Consulting), Emanuele Ghedini (Univ Bologna), Gerhard Goldbeck (Goldbeck Consulting), Georg J. Schmitz (ACCESS), Chris Eberl (FRAUNHOFER, IWM), Rudy Koopmans (Koopmans Consulting) and Nadja Adamovic (TU WIEN).
