Goldbeck Consulting is involved in a range of corporate and publicly funded projects, connecting science to engineering and academia to industry.


OntoCommons is an H2020 Coordination and Support Action that aims to facilitate the development of an ontology-based, FAIR data documentation across all materials & manufacturing domains laying the foundations for an Industry Commons of materials and manufacturing data.

European Materials Modelling Council (EMMC) EMMC

The EMMC is a community driven bottom-up action to connect all existing material modelling activities and stakeholders in Europe. The EMMC aims to network with all existing materials modelling related activities in Europe and make use of the EMMC network to complement these activities.

Following the conclusion of a successful H2020 Coordination and Support Action, EMMC has been established as a not-for-profit association (EMMC ASBL) in Brussels.
Goldbeck Consulting is in charge of the executive management of EMMC ASBL.


OntoTrans provides an ontology-based Artificial Intelligence approach that connects manufacturing process challenges with relevant information sources and materials modelling solutions, capable to support optimal materials and process design in a so-called Open Translation Environment. OntoTrans provides smart targeted guidance through the whole translation process, namely from the initial user case specification to actual materials modelling workflows with related validation, verification and uncertainty quantifications. This is achieved via analysis of available data (data fusion), modelling workflow options, simulation and contextual results interpretation. Its footing on the European Materials & Modelling Ontology ensures wide interoperability and standardisation. 


Virtual Materials Marketplace (VIMMP) is a Horizon 202 project which provides an evimmp logoasily accessible, user-friendly digital marketplace for materials modelling. VIMMP will provide access to 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.

At the core of VIMMP is a metadata enriched data environment that eases the tasks of all actors. In particular it will facilitate the translation of a scientific problem into modelling workflows, ready for simulation using a range of software tools integrated into an open simulation platform and deployed on cloud services. The VIMMP platform is open, so that any provider can easily integrate and deploy their software codes as well as services.


MarketPlace1200DPIMarketPlace is a Horizon 2020 project which will build a digital marketplace for materials modelling, offering the framework for integration of the diverse range of codes, components, data and services from all fragmented materials modelling in order to provide a single point of access for users in industry and academia.

Goldbeck Consulting is a partner in the project contributing to product management, interoperability and business planning.


Oyster Logo-white

OYSTER stands for “Open characterisation and modelling environment to drive innovation in advanced nano-architectured and bio-inspired hard/soft interfaces”.

OYSTER is a Horizon 2020 project that brings together leading laboratories and SMEs to take existing nanoscale characterisation technologies towards widespread utilisation in process optimisation and model validation.

OYSTER achieves this by sharing metadata in an Open Innovation Environment (OIE), where new paradigms of multi-scale contact mechanics are validated on selected application oriented reference materials through continuous interaction with the European Materials Characterisation Council (EMCC).

Goldbeck Consulting is a partner in the project contributing to the interactions with the EMCC, the elaboration and standardisation of terminology, classification and metadata to support the OIE.


COMPOSELECTOR is an EU Horizon 2020 project which aims to advance decision-making petit-logo-new-1in the selection, design and fabrication of polymer-matrix composite materials. Goldbeck Consulting is subcontractor responsible for market assessment and business plan development for materials modelling integration into business decision support systems.

Research Impact Analysis

Goldbeck Consulting has been carrying out research into the impact of materials modelling research and software since 2011 and widely quoted reports.

European Materials Characterisation Council (EMCC)EMCCnewlogo

The aim of the EMCC is to support establishing a community of European stakeholders in the process of developing and improving characterisation tools in order to bring the development of nanomaterials and advanced materials in Europe into end products more successfully.

Goldbeck Consulting is represented on the Organisational Management Board of the EMCC.

Engineering & Upscaling Cluster

Enginering & Upscaling is any activity that is required to take a technology to Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs) required for commercial products in the relevant markets.

In 2014, the European Commission RTD Unit in “Advanced Materials and Nanotechnologies” launched a cluster initiative to determine required actions and policy development to improve engineering & upscaling success.

Goldbeck Consulting supported the European Commission Project Officers in running the cluster, carrying out surveys and workshops and writing study reports.

European Multiscale Materials Modelling Cluster

A cluster of European FP7 projects that have the ambition to develop an open, integrated and multi-purpose numerical nano-design environment. The cluster is intended to enable knowledge exchange, foster adoption of novel approaches for multi-scale modelling and provide a platform for harmonizing standardization.

Composite Design

A collaboration with Esteco and e-Xstream, combining modeFrontier and Digimat to streamline composite design. See the publications for further information.
