NMBP-35 WorkShop and 36M Review Meeting of NanoMECommons

The 2nd joint exploitation event NMBP-35 H2020 Projects CHARISMA, NanoMECommons, and EASI-STRESS was a huge success, held on the 17th of January in Madrid at the CSIC facilities.The workshop, titled “From Research to Industry: How Characterisation and DigitisationChange the Game,” aimed to explore the impact of characterisation and digitisation on various industries.

The agenda featured three sessions, including industry talks, discussions on the vision of European Materials Modelling and Characterisation Councils, and insights into current opportunities for industry from research facilities and projects. R-NanoLab demonstrated the NanoMECommons project, its advancements, and the potential impact on industrial processes with the goal of making them more sophisticated and efficient. Also, our colleague Georgios Konstantopoulos moderate the open panel talk apart from Horizon funded projects (CHARISMA & NanoMECommons), industry sector (IRIS & i-TRIBOMAT) as well as European Materials Modelling and Characterisation Councils.

Following the workshop, the NanoMECommons project’s 36-month review meeting took place the next day, on the 18th of January, hosted by partner CSIC. Representatives from the 18 partner organizations, including Project Coordinator Professor Charitidis and Project Officer Dr. Yanaris Ortega Garcia , attended the meeting. They addressed the project’s current status and established a work plan for the following phase, with a focus on digitizing characterization procedures and developing standards to ensure harmonization across industry and research sectors.

During the meeting, R-NanoLab presented as the coordination team an update on NanoMECommons objectives, an overview of the project and CEN, as well as their most recent progress on tasks in WP2, WP5, and WP9. As the leader of these work packages, they also offered updates on activities such as harmonisation and industrialisation of nanoscale high-speed nanoindentation, standardisation, collaboration with existing NMBP characterization initiatives, EMCC engagement, and project management future steps. 

Overall, the 36-month review meeting and the WorkShop:NMBP-35 joint event “From Research to Industry: How Characterisation & Digitization Changed the Game” were extremely beneficial, demonstrating the project partners’ dedication to fulfilling the NanoMECommons project’s objectives.
