Do not miss the chance to learn what QM-FORMa can offer to help you with designing materials and applying quantum mechanics to solve industrial challenges!

QM-FORMa invites you to a Workshop to learn about how quantum mechanical simulations can elevate the design of materials.

The workshop is a satellite event to the Expert Forum on Sustainable Materials for Future Mobility.

About QM-FORMa

QM-FORMa is a network of world-leading experts who can design new materials, using first principles Quantum Mechanics calculations. The QM-FORMa is a project supported by EIT RawMaterials.

Using Quantum Mechanics to design materials is a new approach. In practice, there is little research into producing new materials because it requires costly, time-consuming lab work. Now computers have the capacity to perform sophisticated quantum mechanics calculations – and so can design new materials that are tailored to specific needs.

The potential impact of QM-FORMa’s services is faster innovation rates and better products. Companies can gain a competitive edge finding substitute materials, e.g. copper in brake pads or cobalt in cutting tools.

Therefore, all companies need to act in order to:

  • avoid the risk of being blocked out of markets by competitors who have patents;
  • provide products that have lower health risks;
  • increase the sustainability rating of their supply chains;
  • ensure access to (critical) raw materials.
