Computational Materials Data Network
Type: Industry Group
The Computational Materials Data Network (CMD Network)—founded by ASM International—supports, facilitates, and promotes the collection, dissemination, and management of materials data. Launched in response to the U.S. Materials Genome Initiative, the network aims to advance materials development and deployment by facilitating information sharing within the materials community. The CMD Network supports advanced computational materials science and engineering by facilitating the completion of materials-related projects through interactive data sharing and collaboration. To propagate thorough and reliable materials data, the CMD Network conducts Materials Data Management Support Services and Materials Data Demonstration Projects, which dynamically interact with the Materials Data Laboratory™. Granta provides key enabling technology.
