Nanotechnology and other advanced and enabling technologies are having a massive impact across a very wide range of industrial sectors. Some European countries have developed voluntary codes intended to promote responsible innovation but which have failed to provide the practical support expected.
This 1/2 day Conference presents the outcomes of the European NanoCode Project, recommendations to promote responsible innovation, and also provides views from leading Spanish experts as to how we can best achieve solutions tailored to Spain innovation landscape
MULT.EU.SIM aims to gather the simulation research community in Europe to establish a joint vision of multiscale modelling and simulation. This will enable to prepare Europe to play a leading role in the opening era of computational sciences where multiscale simulation will profoundly change the scientific and technological practices. This European vision will serve as the foundation for a joint effort with emphasis toward multiscale unified codes and standardized interfaces & workflows in a field that is currently very fragmented. Ultimately, the availability of such a multiscale code toolbox will put Europe’s industry in a strong IPR position
