4th EMMC International Workshop 2023

#EMMC2023
Materials & Digitalisation: the backbone of the Green Transition

Materials, Digitalisation and the Green Transition form a closely connected triangle. 

Materials are at the core of industrial processes, products and their functions and properties. The Green Transition, including advances in sustainability and safety crucially depends on materials innovation, which itself relies on digital technologies from modelling to data and knowledge representations. 

Digitalisation advances materials innovation and the green transition, for example by providing the ability to carry out monitoring and tracking, simulation and forecasting, visualisation, systems and knowledge management and by enabling new levels of interactions [1].

The EMMC 2023 International Workshop will discuss the triangle Materials – Digitalisation – Green Transition from different perspectives, including

Model development
Data and knowledge representations
Software tools
Industrial transformation
Policy frame

The EMMC International Workshop has become known as a leading cross-cutting event where stakeholders from different materials & digital fields in industry and academia get together to discuss topics of strategic importance and elaborate on gaps and potential actions to move the field forward. Previous EMMC International Workshops had more than a third of participants coming from industry, benefitting from the opportunity to get a high level overview of key trends and opportunities in materials and digitalisation.

Following events in 2017, 2019 (in Vienna) and 2021 (online), the 4th EMMC International Workshop returns as a physical event in Vienna in 2023 in its successful format combining high level plenaries with discussion sessions led by Impulse Talks. EMMC 2023 supports the importance of networking in physical events, EMMC 2023 by including 30 minute breaks between sessions as well as a poster session, a European Projects market, a joint ‘science walk’ through the centre of Vienna and an opportunity to socialise at Heurigen.

Session outcomes will provide input to future versions of the EMMC Roadmap as well as the AMI2030 initiative.

Whether you are a Modeller, Materials Data Scientist, Software Owner, Translator, Industrial R&D Manager or a Circular Economy expert, the EMMC 2023 International Workshop provides the opportunity to connect with colleagues, hear about latest developments in materials & digitalisation, get your voice heard and inform future research policy.
