Within EMMC, translation is considered as the process of translating an industrial challenge/ problem into a solution with the help of modelling. The experts that are performing this process are called Translators. They provide a service for the companies and can be either academics, software owners/engineers, internal employees of the company or independent translators (not related to specific research/industrial institution).

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

Among the topics for discussion are:

  • Translation and Translators: what can industry expect from them?
  • Translation Show Cases
  • Materials Modelling Market Place: the future exchange place for modelling ideas/solutions/providers/translators
  • Business Decision Support Systems (BDSS): how can translation be of use?
  • How to enhance the level of maturity of modelling use in your company: role of the translators as internal or external experts?
  • Translation for SMEs

During the workshop, experts from academia and industry will share their experience in these topics followed by open discussions during a plenary and two parallel sessions.

The industrial participants will benefit from exchanging experiences and ideas on the efficient implementation and/or acceleration of the industrial use of modelling as an important tool for business solutions, innovations and increased competitiveness in the market. In addition, the participants will have the opportunity to further sharpen the industrial requirements for the role of the Translators,  the  benefits and the economic impact of the industry from the translation and the modelling processes.

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.
