There is a need to integrate and unify digital and materials competences and resources, including data, ontologies, characterisation and modelling, as well as robotics and machine learning, to accelerate the design, development, production and application of advanced materials with the desired manufacturing processes, properties, durability, and end of life.
The lack of integration is a major challenge for the advanced materials design and development serving the innovation markets, including the related value chains.
Such collaboration should be extended to the manufacturing industries and their digital marketplaces so that data and information to design new materials can be shared by all interested stakeholders in a faster way.
Platforms integrating materials data management, modelling, characterisation and harnessing machine learning and automation have the potential to accelerate substantially the design, development and upscaling of new advanced materials by a time factor of 5-10 and decrease the costs associated with innovation chain and market exploitation. The necessary acceleration and cost decrease should be directly beneficial for any subsequent manufacturing process.
Actions are required that ensure synergies and common approaches across strategic innovation markets driven by advanced materials, to capitalise on commonalities and to ensure interoperability and integration of all methodologies. There should be collaboration with existing European and national data spaces and marketplaces on interfaces and metadata, in order to ease the access and improve the (re-) use of materials data.
Proposals should address all of the following activities:
Proposals should build on or seek collaboration with existing projects and develop synergies with other relevant European and national initiatives, funding programmes and platforms, in particular with the “Materials 2030 Roadmap” and any follow up actions.
In order to ensure interoperability and coordination of data architectures, projects should in particular exploit synergies with:
