MaX on EMMC-CSA Workshop: Industrial impact of materials modelling – achievements and perspectives

The Politecnico di Torino is organising the workshop on Industrial impact of materials modelling – achievements and perspectives this coming 8-10 July 2019 in Sala Teatro, SiTI, Turin (IT). 

In partnership with the European Commission, through the European Materials Modelling Council, is strongly committed to promote the uptake of materials modelling by the European industry. To this goal, networking and collaboration among the different European stakeholders involved in the materials development sector – e.g. academic model developers, software owners, Translators (consultants) and end-users – is to be promoted. Improved collaboration helps to identify critical areas needing development, possible bottlenecks for the adoption and use of materials models and to design proper strategies for more efficient exploitation and further development of materials models.

MaX was invited to join this event and our very owned Elisa Molinari - MaX project coordinator will be the one to represent the team on the said event.

This event will gather a consistent number of experts (around 70) from the different stakeholders interested/involved in materials development, and provide a discussion platform for industrial requirements as compared to state-of-the-art modelling techniques. The ambition of the workshop is to cover the more relevant aspects which are critical to the widespread adoption of materials modelling techniques in the industry.

Six thematic sessions are organised and will cover:

  • State-of-the-art modelling techniques and guidelines for further model developments;
  • The perspective of the European software owners/developers;
  • The economic impact of materials modelling on industrial innovation;
  • Strategies for improving the two-way transfer of knowledge between academia and industry -  i.e. Translators and their training requirements;
  • Interoperability requirements and frameworks – e.g. ontologies – for the integration of models and software.
  • Lastly, a special session will be dedicated to the discussion of the potential of artificial intelligence in the framework of materials modelling, with particular emphasis on the benefit for high-throughput simulations, big data and their mining – e.g. data-driven modelling – and industrial automation towards Industry 4.0.
