Modelling in industry
The use of materials modelling in industries is very versatile and addresses fields like Energy, Environment, Transport, Health, ICT and Manufacturing, as well as a wide range of cross-sectorial issues. In practice, it is supporting the creation of products like solar cells, sensors, car parts, tissues, computers, tools and coatings.
