Session 11

Industrial Needs on Modelling Tools for Generating Impact in Industry and Future Game Changers


Industrial needs on materials modelling are a moving target since the requirements on industrial operations depend on changing regulation, market demands and overall policies (like Green Deal, Digitalization, etc.). On the other hand, completely new computing paradigms, like quantum and neuromorphic computing, show up which potentially will have a huge impact in the long term on industrial innovation processes.

The central question to be answered in this session is: Which features of modelling tools will change the game in industry in the near and long term from the perspective of identified industrial needs.


Identify game changers for industrial use of materials modelling in short and long term perspectives.
