Obiettivo 7. Assicurare a tutti l’accesso a sistemi di energia economici, affidabili, sostenibili e moderni
Large scale deployment of intermittent renewable energy supply and the electrification of the transportation sector critically depend on the availability of low cost, high-performance, environmentally friendly and scalable energy storage. Unlocking technological access and optimization of green energy storage solutions is essential for ensuring and accelerating the transition towards a net-zero CO2 emission European Union by 2050. The further development of sustainable, high-performance battery technologies and materials, therefore, plays a central role in ensuring and accelerating this transition. However, the existing paradigm for battery innovation and development is simply too slow and costly to address the urgency of the massive societal challenges resulting from global warming. These challenges face not only the human race, but Earth’s atmo- and bio-sphere in general, and call for radical and accelerated technological innovation to reduce the global CO2 emission to abide by the goals of the Paris Agreement.
Digital Ontology-based Modelling Environment for Simulation of materials, (2019-2023) - Responsabile Scientifico
UE-funded research - H2020 - Industrial Leadership – LEIT - NANOTECHNOLOGIES
SimDOME aims to develop an industry-ready software framework for materials modelling interoperability, basedon EU/EMMC standards on materials modelling, by combining, further developing and adapting existing softwaredeveloped within previous EU FP7-NMP projects SimPhoNy and MoDeNa, the H2020-NMBP project NanoDomeand the FP7 ERC-AdG STRATUS.SimDOME achieves the highest level of interoperability through the standardization of the material users case (i.e.the material/process to be simulated, according to EMMC definitions) that are provided within the SimDOMEframework by means of the European Materials Modelling Ontology (EMMO). User case standardization will allowdata communications between software by translating the concept of each specific implementation to the standardunified concepts and interfaces provided by the ontology.The framework will provide also ready-to-use modules that cover different industrial applications and materialsmodelling fields spanning through multiple scales. The demonstration of the exploitation potential of the frameworkwill be done within project by testing the SimDOME framework prototype and each integrated modelling software intheir respective industrial operational environments (TRL 7) in the fields of gas and liquid phase material synthesis,molecule characterization and chemical kinetics.SimDome will integrate and provide the upscaled software and services for maintenance and support via the existingand future European Materials Modelling Marketplace (EMMM), the network of modelling translation environmentsand the Open Innovation modelling test beds.
VIMMP facilitates and promotes the exchange between all materials modelling stakeholders for the benefit of increased innovation in European manufacturing industry. VIMMP will establish an open-source, user-friendly, powerful web-based marketplace linking beneficiaries from different manufacturing industry sectors with relevant materials modelling activities and resources. To enable a seamless and fully integrated environment, VIMMP is built on solid taxonomy and metadata foundations, including those centred on materials models, software tools, communities, translation expertise and training materials. VIMMP is a true marketplace, offering a substantial boost to all providers of tools and services; integrating modelling platforms based on Open Simulation Platform (OSP) standards that will be pursued in collaboration with the EMMC. Thus, any software owner can easily integrate models and certify codes to adhere to OSP standards. The Translator function will be supported by novel, collaborative tools that use metadata to combine models on an abstract logical level. OSP standards enable Translators and End User to build and deploy workflows quickly. VIMMP contributes novel avenues for coupling and linking of models, which will be validated in the context of three overlapping industry applications: personal goods, polymer nanocomposites and functional coatings. Data repositories relevant to modelling will be developed and integrated in VIMMP, including a novel input parameter repository for mesoscopic model, also materials properties and associated validation data. VIMMP will comprise a full set of education and training resources relevant for a wider range of manufacturing industry. VIMMP users will profit from lowering risk and upfront cost, greater speed and agility of deploying materials modelling and realising the wide range of demonstrated economic impacts.

MODENA - MODELLING OF MORPHOLOGY DEVELOPMENT OF MICRO- AND NANO STRUCTURES, (2013-2016) - Responsabile Scientifico
MoDeNa aims at developing, demonstrating and assessing an easy-to-use multi-scale software-modelling framework application under an open-source licensing scheme that delivers models with feasible computational loads for process and product design of complex materials. The use of the software will lead to novel research and development avenues that fundamentally improve the properties of these nanomaterials.As an application case we consider polyurethane foams (PU), which is an excellent example of a large turnover product produced in a variety of qualities and of which the properties are the result of designing and controlling the material structure on all levels of scale, from the molecule to the final product. Polyurethanes are used in furniture, automotive, coatings, construction, thermal insulation and footwear, which are the most important industry sectors. Tailoring these properties requires understanding and detailed modelling of the fundamental material behaviour on all scales.An open-source software-suite will be constructed that logically interlinks scale and problem specific software of our university groups, using a software orchestrator that communicates information utilizing our proposed new communication standard in both directions, namely upwards to the higher scale and downwards to the lower scale. This feature is unique, enabling the solution of complex material design problems.By that this project contributes to strengthening the European leadership in design and production of nanocomposite materials with functional properties in general. It will also contribute to strengthening European SME positions in the development of computationally intensive simulation software. Finally, it will contribute to making production processes more efficient by combining scale-specific software tools thereby decreasing the time-to-market. This will enable the exploration of many more alternatives eventually leading to improved products and processes.
