The Second EC Workshop on Materials and Manufacturing Ontology – ECONTO2

Date(s) - Thursday, June 6, 2019
9:30 am - 5:00 pm

European Commission - CDMA - DG Research & Innovation


This workshop, on invitation only, will take place in Brussels, Champ de Mars building on 6th June 2019, from 9:30 to 17:00.
The purpose of the one-day workshop is to continue the discussion on “materials and manufacturing informatics” more particular about ontologies in this domain.
The goal in the long run is to build and find wide-spread agreement on an ontology that can be the basis of access and interoperability in the NMBP domain.
This will prepare Industry Commons activities in the NMBP domain but also Big Data and Artificial Intelligence in Horizon Europe.
The participants are invited to share their knowledge and ideas, and to contribute to the development of the concept. They will share their input as experts on ontologies and/or as interested party with knowledge on a subdomains of the NMBP programme.
A back-to-back meeting organised by the EMMC on the EMMO will take place on the 7th.
