Integration of materials modelling into business decision: Approaches, Models and Licenses

An EMMC-Workshop within E-MRS Fall Meeting 2017. 

September 18th 2017, Warsaw

The main focus of the Workshop is to find strategies for successful integration of materials modelling into industrial decision-making based on efficient translation. The application of different models for complex solution of the problems for different business applications will be demonstrated during the workshop. The Workshop brings together software owners and academic model developers, and shows the importance respectively benefits of material modelling for industrial innovation.

Material modelling plays a key role for the development of new materials and products. This is a response to the societal needs, challenges and for ensuring competitiveness of European market. The use of modelling for business decision is cost-effective and it helps to reduce the numbers of tests and experiments.

Obstacles of integration of different approaches and related material models into value chains will be discussed and analysed by means of some examples from experienced software owners and academic model creators.

The goal of the Workshop is to understand the role of so-called translators. Translation has strong emphasis within the EMMC activities. Required Translators are multi-talent people (so-called “solution architect” or “project driver”) who understand, analyze and perform modelling solutions for industrial problems. They are primary players at the interface between industrial end-users on the one hand and software owners / model creators on the other hand. Translators support the usage of materials modelling in industrial R&D to the same level as experiments are used today.

The workshop has the additional goal to boost networking of European and International stakeholders and to provide a communication platform across different communities.

The second focus of the workshop belongs to education. The software owners and model developers will present their strategies for implementation of modelling into industrial problems as well as models capabilities for the specific (focused) industrial cases. Aspects of licensing for different stakeholders will be explained.

Chair: Dr. Natalia Konchakova (Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, GERMANY),


Dr. Denka Hristova-Bogaerds (Dutch Polymer Institute, NETHERLANDS). 

Dr. Daniel Höche (Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, GERMANY) and 

Prof. Dr. Pietro Asinari (Politecnico di Torino, ITALY)

The workshop is supported by the European Materials Modelling Council| | EMMC-CSA EU project, Grant Agreement No. 723867

Impulse Presentations

The focus of the Workshop was the Translation process of materials modelling industrial problems, presentation of successful Translation strategies and understanding of the Translation role for the integration of materials modelling into business decision. The application of different models for complex solution of the problems for different industrial applications was demonstrated. The Workshop had four Units corresponded general topics of E-MRS Fall Meeting 2017. The impulse speakers and workshop participants discussed and confirmed that the gap between fundamental research and successful industrial innovation could be decreased and finally closed with the help of the realization of effective translation strategy.
