EMMC (European Materials Modelling Council) is a not-for-profit association based in Belgium. Since its inception as a bottom-up initiative in 2014, EMMC has been gathering diverse communities across chemistry, materials science in engineering, representing the whole range of modelling and digital representations of materials. These include all physics- and data-based modelling methods and also aims at harmonised digital representations of chemicals and materials (terminologies, taxonomies and ontologies) to support interoperability and improved knowledge generation. Currently EMMC represents about 900 individual members and more than 50 organisations across Europe.
The presentation will provide an overview of EMMC and its member-driven activities.
