The European Materials Modelling Council (EMMC, http://emmc.info) focuses on materials modelling integration in industry. Materials modelling is considered a European Science and Technology asset but needs far more implementation and use in business to achieve its full economic impact. Involvement of materials modelling in manufacturing process plays a key role for the development of new materials and products for European market. It could be realized with help of the efficient translation process, namely translating industrial problems into efficient and feasible materials models. Understanding the dominant role of materials modelling translation and its actuation by so-called Translators at the interface between industrial end-users on one side and software owners / model creators on the other side are the key points of the EMMC activity. Required Transla- tors are multi-talent people (so-called solution architect or project driver) who comprehend, analyze and are aware of modelling solutions which are effective for industrial problems. They are primary players for promoting the link between materials modelling and industrial progress. Translators support the usage of materials modelling in industrial R&D as much as experiments are used today. Another important problem that the EMMC is focusing on is the application of different terminologies by software owners, academic model developers and end- users (SMEs or big companies) for describing the same computational problems. Standardization of materials modeling and description of scientific / industrial projects with the help of MOdelling DAta approach (MODA) [1] will be discussed in the presentation. MODA is an effective instrument for describing modeling approaches and project workflows. This tool is used for evaluation of European modelling projects. Basic MODA concepts are presented to demonstrate the ma- terials modeling standardized description. An example concerning the modelling of a coupling problem of material degradation due to electro-chemical corrosion and mechanical loading is discussed in the talk. The realization of MODA concept for this important industrial problem is considered. The description of modelling aspects based on MODA is explained in the presentation.
