EC ACTIONS TOWARDS A EUROPEAN PILOT NETWORK FOR MATERIALS DATA INFORMATION
Growing demand for computerized materials data and progress in information technology have caused a worldwide increase in the development of materials data banks. The peculiar nature of materials data however leads to complex multiparameter systems which are mostly specialised, expensive and can only be managed by experts. As a result, the individual data bank can hardly meet the need of a large user group which is required to achieve costeffectiveness. Approaches to integrated service networks are under way which should more adequately allow the investigation of the market. The European actions towards a pilot network operating a planned demonstrator programme are described against the historical background of CEC information market development. The description includes a typical candidate data bank for participation in the demonstrator programme, the High Temperature Materials Data Bank of the CEC Joint Research Centre.
