NanoBat at the EMMC International Workshop 2021

NanoBat partners presenting at Session 3 of the Model Development Focus Area

The 3rd International Workshop of the European Materials Modelling Council (EMMC) took place on March 2-4, 2021. It was a virtual meeting organised by the six EMMC Focus Areas, each responsible for one plenary and two invited sessions, followed by a virtual exhibition and discussion tables, having attracted 150+ participants from academia, industry, research laboratories, and European Commission services.

NanoBat marked its presence in Session 3 of the Model Development FA, which is co-chaired by Malgorzata Celuch (QWED), who also served as session organiser and chair. The Session included talks from three NanoBat three partners: Keysight, JKU, and QWED (Figure1).

The specific objectives of Session 3 were to encourage new efforts of the EMMC community towards the modelling of energy materials, with focus on five themes:

  1. multi-scale multi-physics modelling of energy materials,
  2. data-based modelling of energy storage materials and devices,
  3. Open Platform modelling tools and examples for energy materials, for education purposes,
  4. Linking & Coupling Computational Chemistry to Electromagnetics,
  5. linking MODAs and modelling results to CHADAs and characterisation results.

Besides animated discussions during the session, Session 3 relevance and impact are demonstrated by quick follow-ups as well as excellent alignment with the European strategies. Indeed, the need for interoperability of the modelling and experimental characterisation techniques, as indicated in our Theme 5, was elaborated in Session 12 “Policy” by Javier Sanfélix & Yanaris Ortega Garcia (European Commission).

Further NanoBat contributions to the theme will be presented in a forthcoming talk (by M.Celuch) at the Satellite Event of EuroNanoForum on May 4, 2021.

Satellite Event: Advanced materials modelling and characterisation.

The outcomes from all EMMC Focus Areas were carefully documented and are currently being processed to provide input to future research agendas, and in particular the EMMC Roadmap. The notes of Session 3 are already available to the registered EMMC members and a public summary will soon be released.
