Outcome Presentation

thumbnail of EMMC-MPs-survey-outcome


• To inform the EMMC community about the ongoing MMP projects
• To collect feedback from (EMMC) Translators on MMP requirements
• To help design of the available tools and tailor online material for Translators


• Prepared in collaboration with T&T WPs in VIMMP and MARKETPLACE projects
• Ignacio Pagonabarraga (VIMMP) and Kwang-Leong Choy (MARKETPLACE)
• EMMC WP4 team (Natalia Konchakova)


• The survey was prepared using EUSurvey tool as a publicly-accessible document
• Sent on 03/12/2018 from Ernst-Dieter Janotka (EMMC coordination) via email
• Distributed to 651 GDPR-compliant contacts in the EMMC database
• Number of feedback received: 52 (8% is in line with previous surveys)

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.

EMMC Workshop “Industrial view and needs for Translation”

DPI, a partner of the EMMC-CSA project, is organising a workshop on “Industrial view and needs for Translation” in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.


December 4, 2018 – 09:00 – 16:00 GMT


DPI office
Kennispoort, John F. Kennedylaan 2,
The Netherlands


The main idea of the workshop is to evaluate the translation concept and the role of the translator from the point of view of industry. Therefore, the participants are targeted to be industrial members that are either using or are interested to learn how to use modelling.  

The outcome from the discussions during the workshop will be used as recommendations towards relevant currently running EU projects and, via the EMMC Road Map updated with the feedback from the workshop, for giving direction to future projects/calls of the European Commission. 

For more information please visit the event page!


For more information regarding the workshop please contact Denka Hristova-Bogaerds (DPI).

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
