EMMC – Report on IntOP2018: EMMC-CSA Workshop on Marketplaces and Interoperability

On November 6-7, 2018, the EMMC organised the “IntOP2018: EMMC-CSA Workshop on Marketplaces and Interoperability”. This workshop took place at Fraunhofer IWM in Freiburg, Germany.

The goal of the workshop is to bring together main actors developing next generation online materials science collaboration platforms including calculated and measured data repositories to foster discussions and collaboration.

EMMC Translation & training survey for marketplaces

The European Materials Modelling Council (EMMC), in the framework of its activities, has recently started a collaboration with the (EU H2020) VIMMP and MARKETPLACE projects. These latter projects aim to design and realize comprehensive online hubs for the materials modelling community, namely marketplaces.

To this goal, the requirements of marketplaces are to be tailored on the specific needs of the perspective users. Among the many services that are currently being planned, the marketplaces will offer a dedicated space to Translation & Training resources. As you may know from previous actions of the EMMC, Translation refers to all those activities required to translate an industrial innovation problem into a modelling activity, successfully bridging the industrial and the academic worlds to create new value.
In order to properly design the Translation and Training resources of the marketplaces, we would like to ask your opinion. A brief questionnaire is presented at the following link:

The survey takes short time to complete, and your contribution will be invaluable in helping us to design and shape the resources and tools that will be available on the marketplaces for Translation. So, we would sincerely appreciate your feedback. We guarantee that your data will be handled only by the EMMC and only for the purpose of this survey, in complete respect of your privacy. 
Thank you in advance for your willingness and cooperation.

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
