The future of the European industry is associated with a strong materials modelling capacity. An efficient modelling approach is needed to shorten the development process of materials-enabled products.
Materials modelling is used today by a range of industries to improve efficiency and achieve breakthroughs in the development of new and improved materials and processes. A set of case studies has been developed which demonstrate how industrial R&D problems have been addressed by the integration of different types of materials models and what technical and technological benefits and business impacts were achieved as a result.
The first 76 pages of Version V include the definition of four model categories and a vocabulary.
Simulated data can be described with the hierarchy:
From page 151 to-345 examples of modelling in 100 FP7 projects can be found.

Materials Modelling: EMMC International workshop
The future of the European industry is associated with a strong materials modelling capacity. An efficient modelling approach is needed to shorten the development process of materials-enabled products. Communication between the fields will be facilitated by a commonly understood vocabulary. An international meeting with US, South-Korea and Japan was held addressing all these issues. Here is the meeting report.

In the new Framework programme H2020 of the European Union, efforts will continue to consolidate the strong European position in the field. A first meeting on "Materials Modelling: Where do we want to go?" has been held in February 2014 and the minutes can also be found on this web address.
