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.

IntOp2018: EMMC Workshop on Marketplaces and Interoperability

Join peers from a wide range of backgrounds sharing an interest in materials digitalisation, from digital online marketplaces for materials modelling to interoperability and ontologies at IntOp2018, organised by the European Materials Modelling Council (EMMC) on 6-7 November in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany.

Materials Modelling Marketplaces are next generation systems integrating tangible and intangible materials model components to support enhanced innovation. These digital marketplace take advantage of recent advances in information technologies to establish online innovation platforms to explore, learn, and create advanced materials modelling solutions covering all models and domains.

Wider interoperability across models and data is key to enhanced integration, marketplace and digitalisation. It requires agreement based on ontologies for materials,  including characterisation, modelling, processing of materials as well as data, models and services.

The workshop will discuss the establishment of a digital single marketplace as innovation hub for the advancements of materials based industries. The workshop addresses both key technological and organisational human capital gaps. 

The EMMC is seeking support of the entire community for the establishment of common standards for access to all online materials modelling resources including data repositories of materials properties, online modelling workflows, translation, education and training services.

The workshop will also host a kickoff session for the International Materials Ontology Interest Group led by the EMMC.
