 MOVING TOWARDS A DIGITALLY POWERED CIRCULAR ECONOMY (Brussels 23-25 October 2017)

Two Days of Interactive Thematic Sessions @ G-STIC 2017

The G-STIC 2017 conference aims to accelerate the development, dissemination and deployment of technology innovations that enable the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). On October 23 & 24, G-STIC 2017 will dedicate a number of interactive thematic sessions to how digital technology will be instrumental in realising circular economy concepts, to achieve sustainable growth.

 WORTH PARTNERSHIP PROJECT STRENGTHENS THE SMEs COMPETITIVENESS THROUGH CREATIVITY  (close 31st December 2017)

After the success of the Pilot Project that involved a total of 79 small-medium businesses (SME) and 34 European enterprising partnerships, WORTH Partnership Project is back with renewed expectations.

Embarked in 4 years journey, the new objective is to support 150 cross-boundary partnership projects involving a minimum of 450 companies (SMEs and startups)

Worth Partnership Project is funded by COSME programme of the European Union to support collaborations between SMEs and start-ups of designers, art & craft and creative people with peers’ tech firms and manufactures to create innovative and disruptive products and ideas.

The Worth Partnership Project application call will be on going throughout 4 years, with different windows of opportunity. The first call, that will open the 18th of September 2017, will close the 31st December 2017 for the first partnership formation

 LUBMAT 2018

SAN SEBASTIAN, SPAIN 5th-6th JUNE 2018

LUBMAT is a common initiative between TEKNIKER and JOST Institute for lubrication and tribology which realized that even though there were numerous international congresses dealing with the scientific approach for lubrication and wear, there were not any specific industrially focused. LUBMAT intends to address the industrial public without losing sight of the academic and scientific vision. LUBMAT is a well-established event that is in its 6th edition. Contributions are expected on all aspects of these three main topics:

  • Lubricants and lubrication management.
  • Tribology.
  • Condition monitoring.

WG 1: Modelling and Multiscale

Chairperson: Amaya Igartua (Tekniker)

Scope and objective of this WG

WG1 deals with any aspect related to the modelling of materials and their transformation processes. It is nowadays impossible to image significant step forward in material science without the support of advanced and reliable modelling design capabilities of materials and their behaviour in operating condition and full life cycle view.
Both experimental and theoretical tools have improved considerably so that much stronger links between basic physical and chemical properties at the atomic/molecular structural level and the overall properties of the material have been established. In this context materials modelling will play an increasingly important role as it moves more and more from a description of idealized limiting cases towards an almost complete characterization of the system being investigated.

In that sense, the WG1 covers all the aspects related to material modelling as:

Modelling and simulation of material properties (microstructure, texture, internal stresses, physical and mechanical properties, acoustical damping, wear and corrosion resistance, lifecycle...).

Modelling of Manufacturing Processes
Simulation of manufacturing processes (solidification, 3D injection with or without reinforcement, fibers, anisotropy...) and systems (virtual and accurate products, conduction positions).

Product Lifecycle Modeling
Integration of the environmental impact and the cost impact, reflecting the overall lifecycle consequences for the product or process development.

Multiscale Modeling and Characterization
a key challenge for a cost effective development and production of both traditional and innovative Nanomaterials is the integration of computational modelling with experimental and testing techniques, in a common integrated industrial concept design. Integrated Multiscale Collaborative Frameworks enable real unified modelling - experimental & testing strategies thanks to the “Multiscale Information Space” concept and method. This implies the development of languages and modules to describe physical and chemical structures and related Structure – Properties – Performance – Processes relationships and interdependencies over the full range of space and time scales.

The main industrial sectors addressed by WG1 modelling activities includes:

  • Aerospace
  • Automotive, Rail & Marine industries (replacing conventional metals)
  • Gas turbines, Pressure vessels, Wind energy (turbine blades)
  • Micro-chips & micro-machines
  • Biotech & Medicine
  • Extreme conditions: high-temperature, high pressure, creep, corrosion and radiation resistance
