Update on EuroNanoForum 2023 and EMCC Session

We’d like to invite you to view the first version of EuroNanoForum agenda which is now available. EuroNanoForum is spread out over 3 days, and each day has something different to offer, from pitch presentations to high level debates, and hot topics from the various challenges in the materials field. Make sure you register and don’t miss out on the opportunity to connect with experts and other like-minded professionals.

Registrations are now open. Please follow the link below to register (both online or in person participation):

Hopefully, we’ll get the chance to meet you and exchange insightful views during EMCC session on Day 3 or in the exhibition.

Save the date! June 13, 2023: EMCC Session in EuroNanoForum – Advanced materials characterisation: Digitalisation and Materials Innovation Markets on the spot


Digitalisation opens opportunities for European SMEs in niche high-tech markets and for strengthening the competitiveness of large global players in Europe. The Advanced Materials 2030 Initiative (AMI2030) has identified the key role of advanced materials in the green and digital transition and highlighted the need to combine materials and digital competences in materials industries as key challenge of the European materials industry.  

As a complement and support to this initiative, the European Materials Characterisation Council (EMCC) aims at addressing these challenges by bringing together key players in European industry and policymakers. The proposed EMCC session, endorsed by the European Commission, will showcase the strategic role of characterisation in the broader framework of AMI2030 in driving innovation and promoting the best use of materials in industry and society, with a particular attention to digitalisation.  

The European Materials Modelling Council (EMMC), which is leading Digitalisation WG1 in AMI2030, also plans support this event, highlighting the intertwining of materials characterisation and modelling and the key role of model-based design in driving digital innovation. The EMCC session will include plenary talks, as well as provide a platform for roundtable discussions and roadmapping, enabling participants to map out the challenges and opportunities facing in industry. Digitalisation (in the sense of the coherent, integrated digital and model-based representation of materials, processes and products) is a key enabler for advanced materials development in the twin transition. Digital monitoring is expected to increase Industrial Resilience to external pressure in the supply chain and new regulations that arise form Governance Bodies, due to the optimized use of resources and data-driven and rapid adaptivity of manufacturing to the new challenges in a new digital and sustainability framework.

NMBP-35 Horizon 2020 Projects NanoMECommons, Charisma, and Easi-stress will co-host a hybrid Workshop event and would like to invite you to join in person!

Workshop Title

Materials characterization and software tools as key enablers in NMBP-35 projects: Towards industrial transition and wider acceptance of new methods and products

Date and Location 

The workshop will be held on Thursday the 24th November 2022, as a hybrid event (Athens/online), and is supported by European Materials Characterisation Council (EMCC).

Thematic Areas

The outcomes of the workshop will be used for an Open Consultation Process, by identifying the community needs in accordance with EC directives and EMCC objectives in three key thematic areas:

  • Characterization/Standardization
  • Suites of multi-scale/AI modelling and characterization
  • Materials 2030 Roadmap: Characterization and modelling as horizontal enablers

Registration and Agenda

Registration Deadline: 11th November 2022

Agenda: Please find further Information via our websites.

Cost: Free, but registration is required!

ONTOTRANS First Open Workshop – March 15-16, 2022.

Dear colleagues,

we invite you to join the Horizon 2020 Project OntoTrans for its first virtual Open Workshop

Innovation 5.0: Open Translation Environment for materials and manufacturing value chains

on Tuesday, March 15 and Wednesday, March 16, 2022

In our workshop we provide information on

  • how to represent manufacturing process challenges in a standard ontological form
  • how to connect challenges with relevant information sources and materials modelling solutions
  • how OntoTrans and its Open Innovation Framework function and how it
  • develops from blue print to real life

Participate in our three sessions (Project, Collaboration and Demonstration) and join us in fostering collaboration and support to build an interconnected ecosystem for industrial impact together with our related project partners CHARISMA, DOME 4.0, EASI-STRESS, MarketPlace, MUSICODE, NanoMECommons, OntoCommons, OpenModel, OYSTER, VIMMP and VIPCOAT.
