Dotmatics supports Umicore Corporate R&D in processing experimental data
Dotmatics, a leader in scientific R&D software linking science, data and decision-making, today announced that it has been selected by Umicore Corporate Research and Development, part of the global materials and recycling technology company Umicore, as IT partner for its corporate R&D. (CRD) digitization project. The strategic agreement to implement the essential elements of the Dotmatics R&D innovation platform within the CRD, including the electronic laboratory notebook (ELN), initially covers more than 200 users and is expected to span the next 5 years.
Technology is at the heart of Umicore’s success as the company applies its unique expertise in materials science, chemistry and metallurgy to deliver solutions that enable customers to develop more sophisticated, durable and safer products for greater mobility. clean and other products that are essential in everyday life. life.
“At Umicore, we use the power of technology, innovation and data to develop materials for a better life.” says Yves Van Rompaey, SVP Corporate Research & Development from Umicore. “Our forward-looking approach and R&D digitization project with the Dotmatics platform will enhance our world-class in-house expertise in metallurgy, chemistry and materials science, enabling our corporate R&D scientists to get the most out of all their data and to further accelerate innovation and process technologies.
The Dotmatics platform was selected to allow Umicore CRD scientists to access their data while reducing computational complexity through data standardization. Using highly configurable role-based workflows, researchers will be able to capture key scientific and operational data, from designing experiments and planning resources to performing lab activities, all with a high fidelity in an Experience Management System (EMS). The high-quality FAIR data set (findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable) can be analyzed to obtain in-depth scientific information that better informs R&D decision-making. Umicore CRD scientists will have the ability to effectively share results, avoid unnecessary rework and streamline projects through knowledge re-use.
“We are delighted to have been selected by Umicore Corporate R&D for their transformational digitization project,” said Mike McKee, President of Dotmatics. “The impact of the data-driven scientific research that companies like Umicore conduct cannot be underestimated – it will fuel the key to materials innovation to make the world a healthier, cleaner and safer place to live. safer.”
