6. Modelling and characterisation at nanoscale

The development of new materials and their optimal use across industries are significant innovation drivers. Large and small companies rely on numerical simulations to effectively and efficiently design and engineer new products, and thus minimize the need for prototyping and testing. More and more companies have recently started using electronic, atomistic and mesoscopic materials modelling to include more detail in their simulations to treat new effects, describe more complex systems, or aim for more reliable modelling results. Modelling at nano-scale calls for new validation techniques and data that build trust in materials modelling or provide input to further development on existing materials models. The growing impact of modelling to the European industries is also been observed by the Commission, leading to support to the new plattform.
This session will show the current status in nano-scale modelling, the connection between the materials models and experimental characterisation and the latest developments in characterisation techniques.
