The FORCE project is funded by Horizon 2020 under NMBP-23-2016 call with Grant agreement number: 721027.

The call topic is: Advancing the integration of Materials Modelling in Business Processes to enhance effective industrial decision making and increase competitiveness.

A new H2020 project to advance materials modelling and business decision systems

Formulations and computational engineering (FORCE) is a new project, underway within the EU program Horizon 2020. The main goal of the consortium is to bring materials modelling to the heart of business decision making by integrating materials modelling into state of the art business decision support systems (BDSS). The project will enable industries to make more knowledgeable decisions based not only on existing legacy data, but also on new data generated by state of the art multiscale and multi-physics materials modelling.  (more information)

The main goals of FORCE:

Combine materials and business modelling to explore which technical solutions are economically viable

Enable better utilisation of (the huge) dynamic data and information


Develop an integrated Business Decision Support System (I-BDSS)

Materials modelling + business tools + databases into a single workflow

Enable advanced multi-criteria optimisations based on advanced KPIs

Applicable to different industrial sectors

Optimise the integration of humans in new more complex industries

Validation and training of translators on the system
