Everything that has to do with the capabilities and qualities of the materials models and the modelling workflows: development, validation and application.
Topics include the semantic foundation (from terminology to ontology), standardised documentation and cross-domain interoperability platforms.
Successful materials modelling software uses the best algorithms, it is numerically robust, carefully validated, well documented, easy to use, and continuously maintained during decades.
This Focus Area is concerned with all aspects that play a role in the impactful use of materials modelling in industry, including People, relevant research and business Processes, Models use and simulations, and Data Infrastructures and Analysis.
The RoadMap recognises the importance of making advances in materials modelling and digitalisation of materials sciences to support the competitiveness of European industry.
