The MarketPlace Web-Platform

The concept of the MarketPlace is to leverage recent software engineering and ICT advances to collect, adapt and integrate all scattered modelling components from all fragmented materials modelling and industrial communities and provide a single point of access - an online gateway - to all materials modelling activities in Europe.

MarketPlace aims not only at information components but also provides the mechanisms and services to create and apply advanced materials modelling workflows. All this is directly made possible on the MarketPlace integrated webplatform and through connectivity to externally linked High-Performance-Computing (HPC) resources (e.g., PRACE) and database warehouses (e.g., Zenodo).

Summary

The MarketPlace consortium will utilise state of the art information technologies to build an open web-based integrated Materials Modelling and Collaboration platform...

Objectives

The overarching goal of the MarketPlace project is to design, create and maintain a sustainable web-based platform providing a central access point to all needed tangible and intangible modelling components...
