Repositories and Marketplaces

Tangible and intangible components

Provide all components for materials development. EMMC Marketplace concept encompasses the complete field including all models and application and industrial fields

Scope and objectives

Marketplaces provide manufacturers a one-stop shop, a single access point to materials modelling resources and repositories in Europe. The underpinning scope of the working group is to promote and coordinate with all Marketplace and repositories activities in Europe as well as stimulating the establishment of an EMMC Marketplace hub as a common access point for existing databases with federated resources. Thus, the EMMC provides a neutral gateway to third-party Marketplaces and databases and an all-encompassing information platform as knowledge base and online collaboration environment.

Integrated Workflows

Advance and promote integration of interoperable materials models and data repositories into materials modelling workflows

Manage Knowledge

Stimulate participation in the catalogue of the existing databases and promote interoperability between repositories (both commercial and free)


Identifying and address technical and societal concerns regarding sharing, proper provision for IP and privacy issues

Two ongoing projects

MARKETPLACE - Materials Modelling Marketplace for Increased Industrial Innovation

The concept of the MARKETPLACE is to leverage recent software engineering and ICT advances to collect, adapt and integrate all scattered modelling components from all fragmented materials modelling and industrial communities and provide a single point of access - an on-line gateway - to all materials modelling activities in Europe.
The MARKETPLACE project is funded by Horizon 2020 under H2020-NMBP-25-2017 call with Grant agreement number: 760173

Virtual Materials Marketplace | VIMMP

VIMMP provides an easily accessible, user-friendly hub to access all tangible and intangible components, such as information, knowledge, services and tools to support the efficient decision making, uptake and effective use of materials modelling by a wide range of manufacturing end-users, thereby facilitating an accelerated speed of development and market deployment of new materials.
The VIMMP project is funded by Horizon 2020 under H2020-NMBP-25-2017 call with Grant agreement number: 760907
