OYSTER held their final project meeting –24 March 2022

The project review meeting of the OYSTER Project (M52) took place on the 24th March, as a hybrid meeting. Delegates who attended in person were hosted by UniRomaTre (Project Coordinator). Project partners presented all achieved results obtained from the different work packages, who got positive feedback by the External Monitor who attended virtually to the Review Meeting.

A paper with OYSTER acknowledgment nominated for the 2022 Best Paper Award of the journal “Nanomaterials”

The paper “Nano-Scale Residual Stress Profiling in Thin Multilayer Films with Non-Equibiaxial Stress State” (by Università degli studi Roma Tre et al.) which has an OYSTER acknowledgment, has been nominated for the 2022 Best Paper Award of the journal “Nanomaterials. This award will be presented to research and review articles published in Nanomaterials in 2020. Winners will be announced at the end of August 2022.  To access the paper please visit this link.

OYSTER Open Day 2022 Workshop – 17 March 2022

The OYSTER Project is pleased to announce its final exploitation and dissemination workshop which is taking place on the 17 March 2022, via ZOOM digital platform.

This will be a great opportunity to meet the OYSTER partners and learn about activities and the results of this project, from the project partners presentations and exhibitions on our EXPO page. It would be also the time to discuss opportunities and challenges in development of materials characterisation Open Innovation Environment (OIE).

Article published at the Journal of Physical Chemistry B

The OYSTER Partner, Politecnico di Torino, has submitted a paper titled: “Anisotropic Electrostatic Interactions in Coarse-Grained Water Models to Enhance Accuracy and Speed-up of Mesoscopic Simulations” to the Journal of Physical Chemistry B. This work includes the results obtained by Polito in their work on WP3 (Interdisciplinary predictive materials modelling). This paper has been published and can be seen following this link.

OYSTER will be represented at the 2021 Materials Research Society meeting

The OYSTER Partner Politecnico di Torino will give a presentation at the Materials Research SocietyMRS fall meeting (December 6 – 8, 2021). The presentation is titled “Soft Materials Surface and Interface Characterization Through Multi-Scale Simulations“, which is is based on their work on the project.

OYSTER CWA Published

The OYSTER Project has the pleasure to inform that the CWA related to the project (CWA17815:2021) has been published by CEN. This document gives the foundations for a wider adoption of the CHADA principle by other projects and stakeholders.

You can download the document, from the CEN website or directly through this link.

OYSTER M48 meeting – 25 October 2021

The month 48 review meeting of the OYSTER Project took place on the 25 October 2021, via ZOOM. The project is currently in the last stages to be granted a 4-month extension, due to the problems caused by the pandemic.

Partners at the M48 meeting presented the final activities they are running in the project. This was also an opportunity to discuss about the planning for the last Open Day Workshop, taking place at the beginning of 2022, where the final results of the project would be presented.


OYSTER participation at the NanoTexnology Workshop on the 3-10 July 2021

The OYSTER Project was invited to present at the NanoTexnology conference on the 3-10 July at Thessaloniki, Greece. Dr. Eng. Marco Sebastiani, Ph. D. from the UniRomaTre (Project Coordinator), gave a talk on the at this conference titled: “H2020 OYSTER – novel metadata structures for advanced materials characterisation”.
The event had the participation of more than 150 Plenary, Keynote & Invited Speakers, coming from global Academia, Research & Industrial entities.
Some of the topics covered at this workshop were:

  • Open Innovation for Multiscale Modelling of Materials
  • Open Innovation for Multiscale Characterization of Materials
  • Modelling Data Analysis (MODA)
  • Process and Manufacturing
  • Standardisation needs in the Manufacturing Sector
  • Industry needs on Open Innovation Approaches
  • Business Models and Sustainability for Open Innovation Databases
