EMMC Expert Meeting on Training requirements for Translators

The EMMC Translation team is organising an Expert Meeting on Training requirements for Translators.

March 27, 2019 in Hamburg, Germany

Hotel Hafen Hamburg
Seewartenstraße 9, 20459 Hamburg, Germany

The output of the meeting would be used to outline the types of needed translators trainings including the required training material and for the preparation of the rule for Trainers as well as to update the Guide for Translators of EMMC.

For more information please visit the event page.

The meeting is an “invitation only” event. You will be contacted by the organisers.

Contact: Natalia Konchakova (Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht, Germany) – Daniel Höche (Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht / Helmut-Schmidt-University Hamburg, Germany)



This event has received funding via the EMMC-CSA Project

Translation and Training for Companies Working Group

Working group area for registered members only (log-in required)

Knowing the potential economic benefits may boost utilization of simulation by industry, moreover,  industry needs to know the state of the art and possibilities of modelling. They need support from experts in the field to minimize the time needed to develop and implement economically viable materials modelling solutions. Vice-versa, academic researchers developing innovative modelling techniques are often unaware of the actual industrial problems. Thus, communication has to flow in both directions.

The role of Translators and Trainers has to be defined and holistically elaborated. As a consequence, this working group aims to figure out customized competence portfolios allowing the new players (Translators) to be a suitable link within the value chain.


  1. Development of methodologies for Translators and translation processes adapted to various industrial sectors
  2. Organization of joined workshops and events for enhanced use of modelling in industry aiming at training of potential translators (e.g. from R&D units, consultancies or software distributes)
  3. Establishment of study cases (with open access to industry and progress tracking) showing exemplary the benefits of modelling in solving industrial challenges
  4. Organization of customized training sessions targeting industrial demands (especially from SMEs)
  5. Establishment of a trainer network in interaction with other EMMC units allowing fast access to expertise (academics, translators, manufacturers, software developers) e.g. via the modelling Marketplace
  6. Drive awareness and hands-on experience of materials modelling software, in particular in SMEs and engineering
