This satellite meeting of the EuroNanoForum2021 was organised by the European Materials Modelling Council (EMMC ASBL) and the European Materials Characterisation Council (EMCC).

European industrial manufacturing requires the developments of novel, and integrated, characterisation methodologies and computational modelling, especially for establishing the process-microstructure-property correlations in advanced materials in a reproducible and efficient way, allowing design of new and sustainable materials and processes, and rapid upscaling. The ultimate goal is to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of materials and product development by reducing costs and time for product design and time-to-market which will enable the transition to a decarbonised economy

Such developments must be based on knowledge transfer facilitated by data documentation standards and the exploitation of open repositories for data exchange that would be accepted as trusted, efficient and reliable for European industrial manufacturing.

To address this challenge, EMMC and EMCC as well as related projects have been engaged in actions to define a classification and formal documentation of materials modelling and characterisation, the MODA and CHADA, respectively. Furthermore, EMMC has been spearheading the development of an ontology (EMMO) that serves the applied sciences and in particular materials science including modelling and characterisation.
