Horizon 2020: New Centres of Excellence

The European Commission announced today an investment of €195 million via the Horizon 2020 programme in setting up and developing 13 new ‘centres of excellence’ in seven Member States, helping to boost research and innovation performance and inspiring the scientific community to develop new products and processes in tandem with leading scientific institutes from all over Europe.

We are pleased to see the new centres include ENSEMBLE3, which will focus on research excellence and innovation performance in the area of crystal growth-based technologies, novel functional materials with innovative electromagnetic properties, and applications in nanophotonics, optoelectronics and medicine.

Goldbeck Consulting supported ENSEMBLEin developing a Business Plan for the new centre and is looking forward to its fruitful implementation. Congratulations to Prof Dorota Pawlak and her team!

Towards a Digital Materials Alliance for European industry

Goldbeck Consulting is pleased to organise a session at the the EU Industry Days, 5/6 February 2019, the flagship EU event on industrial policy. The conference will include various sessions organised by different Commission departments and industrial stakeholders. High profile industry speakers will attend the event with the purpose of influencing and inspiring future industry leaders, and prompting discussion and debate amongst different audience categories.

The session on Digital Materials will take place on 6 February and discuss a range of questions including

  • How to increase European manufacturing and process industry capacity to extract knowledge from data?
  • How to support leadership by digital transformation of data into knowledge?
  • What actions are proposed for a common semantic knowledge base in materials?
  • How can efforts to build ontologies in various domains of materials and manufacturing be combined for best effect?
  • How to achieve that manufacturing companies remain competitive (new products, high-added value) on the basis of knowledge extracted from wide-spanning data sets?
  • How to promote European benefits from data management, standardised documentation enabling interoperability and linking tools for enriching and enhancing the usability of data?

The session will feature contributions from a range of experts including:

  • Martin Winter, Innovation Manager, Cefic Innovation, Advisory Group & Digital Technologies, European Chemical Industry Council.
  • Riikka Virkkunen, VTT Digitalising Industries Manager, EFFRA board member.
  • Ulrike Sattler, Professor of Computer Science, University of Manchester.
  • Tim Dahmen, Team Leader, German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence, Co-author of https://www. dgm.de/medien/print-medien/strategiepapier-digitale-transformation/
  • Hedi Karray, INP Toulouse, Industrial Ontologies Foundry

Registration for the conference is free.

A New European Network to Coordinate and Support the Industrial Uptake of Materials Modelling

In recognition of the importance of materials modelling for industrial innovation and the strength of Europe, a new Horizon 2020 project has been funded to augment and further boost the actions of the European Materials Modelling Council (EMMC). The new European Materials Modelling Council Coordination and Support Action (EMMC-CSA) includes 15 partners and is coordinated by TU Wien.

Goldbeck Consulting is part of the EMMC management team and leads Work Package 2 on Interoperability and Integration of materials modelling.

For further information, see the EMMC-CSA Press Release.
