EMMC 2014-2019

After the EMMC was established in 2014 a proposal for a Coordination and Support Action (CSA) within the call H2020-NMBP-CSA-2016 was submitted to have a financial frame to establish current and forward looking complementary activities necessary to bring the field of materials modelling closer to the demands of manufacturers in Europe.
The ultimate goal was that materials modelling and simulation will become an integral part of product life cycle management in European industry, thereby making a strong contribution to enhance innovation and competitiveness on a global level. Based on intensive efforts in the past two years within the European Materials Modelling Council (EMMC) which included numerous consultation and networking actions with representatives of all stakeholders including Modellers, Software Owners, Translators and Manufacturers in Europe, the EMMC identified and proposed a set of underpinning and enabling actions to increase the industrial exploitation of materials modelling in Europe.
