Goldbeck Consulting is involved in a range of corporate and publicly funded projects, connecting science to engineering and academia to industry.
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 in 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.
Goldbeck Consulting has been carrying out research into the impact of materials modelling research and software since 2011 and widely quoted reports.
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.
Goldbeck Consulting is represented on the Organisational Management Board of the EMMC and leads the Working Group on Interoperability of the EMMC-CSA project.
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.
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 supports the European Commission Project Officers in running the cluster, carrying out surveys and workshops and writing study reports.
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.
