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

March 15-16, 2022 / virtual event


In the first open workshop of our project, we introduce you to the concept of OntoTrans, an ontology-based Open Translation Environment and how this can enable you to represent your manufacturing process challenges in a standard ontological form. 

You will learn that this allows you to connect your challenges with relevant information sources and materials modelling solutions, and give you access to a holistic approach to support optimal materials and process design. 

After this workshop who will know more about what is under the hood of OntoTrans, get a glimpse into our Open Innovation Framework, i.e., with who we cooperate and finally you will see some development of OntoTrans as it moves from blue print to real life.


manufacturing process challenges in a standard ontological form as technical and business Innovation Cases (UC)


innovation cases with existing appropriate information sources i.e. available data and materials modelling solutions

OntoTrans Project Session

We will introduce the persona of a Translator and how they will experience the OTE. Ontologies play big role and we invite you to follow the process from Innovation Case via conceptualisation to ontology. 

Parts of the OntoTrans Software Environment will be presented and give you an insight into the underlying technology.

OntoTrans Collaboration Session

OntoTrans is part of a range of projects and initiatives developing Enablers for more effective and efficient development of novel materials and products. These Enablers include better materials models, digital marketplaces, open innovation platforms and test beds. 

The workshop will form part of a series of interactions that foster collaboration and support building an interconnected ecosystem for industrial impact.

Confirmed projects: 

OntoTrans Demonstration Session

We will demonstrate certain functionalities of OntoTrans and give insight into what users may expect in the near future.
