The First EC Workshop on Materials and Manufacturing Ontology – ECONTO1

Date(s) - Friday, June 29, 2018
9:00 am - 4:30 pm


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).
