Molecular modelling is an important approach in industrial R&D worldwide. It is a cost-effective, sustainable, and safe approach, reducing the need for chemicals and laboratory experiments.
We are looking for industrial partners who would like to join a Business Finland Co-Innovation project consortium. We aim to find industrially relevant R&D cases and use molecular modelling to surpass barriers to innovation.
For more information about molecular modelling in industrial R&D, please see our Materials bank.
"It has been demonstrated in many individual cases that materials modelling is a key enabler of R&D efficiency and innovation. Companies reported that computational modelling benefits include reduced R&D time and cost, more efficient and targeted experimentation, more strategic approach to R&D, a route to performance optimisation, wider patent protection, improved supply chain control, enhanced decision making and early understanding of application performance aiding faster and more assured market introduction." - The European Materials Modeling Council (EMMC)
Molecular modelling enables R&D process improvements with a return of investment in the range of 3:1 to 9:1.
