VIPCOAT

Virtual Open Innovation Platform for Active Protective Coatings Guided by Modelling and Optimization / GA 952903

New platform supports open innovation in coating materials

Twelve partners from seven countries have united to make the development and production of corrosion protection technologies more sustainable, economical and faster. The Helmholtz-Zentrum Hereon is coordinating the project. The European Union is funding VIPCOAT within the Horizon 2020 program, specifically for the area of “Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Biotechnology, and Advanced Manufacturing and Processing” (NMBP), over four years. The project has been started on May 1st, 2021.

 

About the project

The goal of the EU-funded VIPCOAT project is to create an open innovation platform that should assist engineers in developing coating materials and constructing accelerated life test scenarios to assess their durability. Initially, the platform will target the aeronautic industry. However, it will later host interoperable applications, based on standardized ontologies as extensions of the European Materials Modelling Ontology that should enable to transfer methods and insights to other industries. The VIPCOAT platform will open the door to new production concepts with reduced process steps, lower energy consumption and reduced use of natural resources. Supporting modelling, the platform should also promote the development of green, cheap and efficient coatings that inhibit corrosion.

 

The aim

The aim is to create an open innovation platform that can be used by the research, industrial, political and public sectors alike. The approach facilitates an effective transfer of science and communication between all those involved. The platform is to serve as a database (for experimental, industry-relevant and modeling data), scientific infrastructure and simulation tool at the same time. Machine learning and physics-based modeling are combined here to optimize industry-relevant active protective coating development processes.

Interoperability and Standardized Data Documentation

OntoCommons

Ontology-driven data documentation for Industry Commons

What is OntoCommons?

OntoCommons is an H2020 CSA project dedicated to the standardisation of data documentation across all domains related to materials and manufacturing.

OntoCommons lays the foundation for interoperable, harmonised and standardised data documentation through ontologies, facilitating data sharing and pushing data-driven innovation, to bring out a truly Digital Single Market and new business models for European industry, exploit the opportunities of digitalisation and address sustainability challenges.

How?

By developing the Ontology Commons EcoSystem (OCES) - a set of ontologies and tools that follows specific standardisation rules - and provide a sustainable approach, making the data FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable). Moreover, the OCES implements practical and user-friendly mechanisms of intra- and cross-domain interoperability focusing on materials and manufacturing sectors.

This will be achieved by coordinating a wide range of EU stakeholders and with the support of Demonstration Cases with strong industrial involvement, covering a wide range of NMBP (Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Biotechnology, and Advanced Manufacturing and Processing) application domains.

Who’s behind OntoCommons?

OntoCommons represents relevant stakeholder knowledge by bringing together a consortium from a wide range of communities including subject matter experts (e.g. material scientists), ontologists (e.g. philosophers, semantic web experts), implementers (e.g. database experts), industrial end users (e.g. manufacturers), and application developers.

MatCHMaker

Open data and industry driven environment for multiphase and multiscale Materials Characterization and Modelling combining physics and data-based approaches

The MatCHMaker project is determined to support excellence in research on methods and tools for advanced materials development. MatCHMaker will enable the integration and interoperability of complex C&M workflows matching the needs of EU manufacturing industry. Requirements on multiphase and multiscale materials coming from Construction, Energy and Mobility sectors will be translated into specific innovation challenges that can be addressed by an integrated approach combining characterization and (physics and data-based) modelling for establishing the process-microstructure-macroscopic properties correlation in advanced materials in a reproducible and efficient way reducing development costs, time and risks while improving sustainability.

Knowledge transfer, data sharing and full interoperability between C&M “communities” will be facilitated using data related standards (CHADA, MODA, EMMO) and by the creation of an open repository with connection to design and manufacturing processes. The repository will be based on Semantic Web to represent rich and complex ontologies. EMMO is the starting point, domain and application ontologies related to MatCHMaker use cases and providing a fully semantical vocabulary to describe the produced C&M data will be developed.

Standardisation of MatCHMaker ontologies, data documentation and domain ontologies will be sought via engagement in specific activities (e.g. collaboration with EMMC, EMCC, OntoCommons CSA). The ambition of MatCHMaker is to validate project results on three Use Cases (UC) representatives of low carbon and clean industry: UC1\Construction\Cement; UC2\ Energy\ Solid Oxide Fuel Cells/Solid Oxide Electrolysis Cells (SOFC/SOEC); UC3\ Mobility\Proton-Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells (PEMFC). The project will foster synergies and interaction with EMMC and EMCC to align MatCHMaker results to councils’ objectives.
