DOME 4.0
The EU-funded project DOME 4.0 aims to create an industrial data ecosystem that facilitates business-to-business (B2B) data sharing. By adhering to Open Science and Open Innovation principles, DOME 4.0 enables the generation of value and the development of new or enhanced products, processes, and services. The project showcase real-world examples with industrial relevance in the materials and manufacturing domains on the Digital Open Marketplace Ecosystem focusing on areas such as smart manufacturing, virtual development of composite materials, chemistry knowledge graphs, lightweight construction, polymer additives for corrosion protection, Structural Adhesives: Fatigue Life, Production Equipment and Service Catalogues, Turnkey Services and Custom Workflows Integrating Simulations & Data and on Formulated Consumer Products. Its unique offerings include fostering wider market impact, stakeholder engagement, and community aggregation within the DOME 4.0 ecosystem. Additionally, the project’s MARKETPLACE, allows secure data exchange among stakeholders. Visitors can explore the comprehensive knowledge platform Lhumos, which provides educational materials related to various domains covered by DOME 4.0.

OntoTrans provides an intelligent system that uses machine learning and semantic reasoning to enable end users to represent challenges in their manufacturing process in a standard ontological form and to connect them with relevant information sources and materials modelling solutions. This approach optimises materials and process design, making the manufacturing industry more adaptive and competitive. OntoTrans provides smart targeted guidance through the whole translation process: from the initial innovation case specification to actual materials modelling workflows with related validation, verification and uncertainty quantifications to deliver a complete experience to companies.

MatCHMaker is a Horizon Europe project funded by the European Union supporting excellence in research on methods and tools for advanced materials development towards a low-carbon and clean industry. MatCHMaker aims to reduce the time, cost and risks of developing and optimising advanced materials. This contributes to the European Green Deal to decarbonise the industry while enhancing people’s quality of life. The ambition of MatCHMaker is to validate project results on three Use Cases: Construction (cement), Energy (SOEC) and Mobility (PEMFC). Coordinated by the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), the project involves 10 partners from 8 European countries.

The MUSICODE project is creating a unique Open Innovation Platform for Materials Modelling. The application area is Organic Electronics, for which the required modelling spans all length scales (electronic to continuum) and physics (quantum to fluid dynamics). The MUSICODE platform is a single-entry point for the industrial non-expert user, linked with data, protocols, editing tools, pre-templated modelling workflows and HPC facilities. It enables insight of how chemical structure, materials formulations, and process (gas/wet phase) conditions affect organic material properties and device performance. The MUSICODE platform offers key innovations on several levels, such as workflow design, data handling, software integration, HPC resource management, etc, with the aim to make materials modelling accessible and user-friendly for industry.

The CHARISMA Project (Characterisation and HARmonisation for Industrial Standardisation of Advanced MAterials) is set to harmonise Raman Spectroscopy for characterisation across the life cycle of a material, from product design and manufacture to lifetime performance and end-of-life stage. The project will demonstrate the feasibility of its concept in three industry cases. In the long term, it aims to make Raman spectroscopy a widespread technology used within the Industry Commons concept.

NanoMECommons will establish a transnational and multidisciplinary research and innovation network to tackle the problem of nanomechanical materials characterisation in multiple industries. The focus of NanoMECommons is to employ innovative nano-scale mechanical testing procedures in real industrial environments, by developing harmonised and widely accepted characterisation methods, with reduced measurement discrepancy, and improved interoperability and traceability of data. To achieve this goal, NanoMECommons will offer protocols for multi-technique, multi-scale characterisations of mechanical properties in a range of industrially relevant sectors, together with novel tools for data sharing and wider applicability across NMBP domain: reference materials, specific ontologies and standardised data documentation.

Open Model
OpenModel aims to design, create, provide, and maintain a sustainable integrated open platform for innovation which delivers predictable, validated, and traceable simulation workflows integrating seamlessly third-party physics-based models, solvers, post-processors and databases. OpenModel thus bridges the gap from industry challenge via translation to actionable results that enable well informed business decisions. It will be applicable to a wide range of materials and their related processing technologies and facilitate setting up experiments, reducing error and enhancing development efficiency.
