The European Materials Characterisation Council (EMCC)

This workshop will give a deep overview of the European Materials Characterisation Council (EMCC) roadmap and discuss the input from industry on key required actions on advanced characterisation in Europe. The EMCC has published a roadmap that is a reference for discussion on the most urgent actions, to improve access of industry to advanced characterisation. Stakeholders from EU industry, academy and standardisation bodies will discuss the pivotal role of characterisation in supporting innovation. Aspects of e.g. characterisation data (CHADA), data management plan for scientific/process/manufacturing data, ontologies for the harnessing of data, taxonomy and curation of data, classification, database construction, will be discussed, with view on Industry 4.0 that requires an Open Innovation Ecosystem for knowledge and data sharing to link principal characterisation infrastructures and experts to the real industrial world.


The participation to the workshop will be open.
The contact person for those intending to participate Jorge Costa Dantas Faria.
