What could “participation to the European modelling market place initiatives” mean in practice?
What could “contribution to the EMMC (European Materials Modelling Council)” mean in practice?
In the Introduction to the LEIT WP 2016-2017 (page 6 of 114) it states “Proposers should consider participation in open data pilot (mandatory for modelling topics) and the European modelling market place initiatives (reference to the 2017 topic).”
Within the texts of NMBP-23-2016 (page 75 of 114) and NMBP-25-2017 (page 79 of 114) it states “Projects are expected to contribute actively to on-going activities e.g. in the EMMC (European Materials Modelling Council), and EU funded clusters.”
You can find more information on the bottom-up, non-funded European Materials Modelling Council EMMC on the website www.emmc.info.
On this website there is a Roadmap with a section on the Modelling Market Place initiative (There is an explicit reference to a modelling market place in topic NMBP-25-2017.)
Initiatives and activities are the elaboration and use of standards for vocabulary and classes of models, guidance on software engineering and metadata
