pilot projects

We have identified four ‘Pilot Cases’, or open problems that MaX can contribute to solve, in close contact with leading industrial partners: a challenging test ground for MaX working approach. The same approach is applicable to similarly challenging problems that may emerge from MaX users and community.

Importantly, the developed packages and work-flows constitute the basis for a ‘market-place’ where solutions developed for a given problem may be made available and tailored to other end-users. This opportunity can enable rapid response to shorter-term issues, and is well suited for SMEs, among others.

Pilot Case 1. Computational protocol for friction and tribochemistry

Pilot Case 2. Computational protocol for understanding thermal energy storage in molten salts and nanofluids

Pilot Case 3. Computational protocol for simulating the colour optical properties of natural dyes for food industry

Pilot Case 4. Design and discovery of optimal solid-state electrolytes
