Session 12

The EMMC Roadmap in the R&I Landscape


Materials Modelling and Digitisation is a technology enabler to reach many of the policy goals targeted in the different EU programmes. In this session, funding programmes under preparation for the next multiannual financial framework (MFF) will be identified, where materials modelling and digitalisation has the role to foster innovation in companies.

A benchmark of how these programmes are inter-linked with the EMMC roadmap priorities will be performed, followed by gap identification and proposals for action (e.g. review of workprogrammes drafts and of EMMC roadmap).

In addition, synergies and coordination needs between the relevant actions in EU programmes will be explored.


The objectives of the Session will be the identification of the EMMC Roadmap gaps related to different R&I funding programmes and proposal on recommended actions to fill them. The session will also be useful to raise awareness within the EMMC Community of the potential opportunities for funding their R&I activities.
