Type: Active Collaborative Project

Partners: DOW, Unilever, Megara Resins, IBM, Fraunhofer, Enthought, Enginsoft, Uni. Patras, ETH Zurich

The project aims to develop a software and data framework to enable non-expert users to access materials simulation to support business decision making. Consultants, or ‘translators’, will help map end-user product requirements to the appropriate models. Guidance for how to undertake this translation is an expected outcome. The project focuses on three industrial end-user cases by means of demonstration case study materials. The project is linked to the European Materials Modelling Council (EMMC). Granta will provide project data management to the project, based on the GRANTA MI materials information management system, and provide guidance on data transfer between the systems in some key workflows.
