MATERIALS DATA SYSTEMS IN THE EC, INTEGRATION AND HARMONISATION
The Commission of the European Communities, which develops the High Temperature Materials Databank (DG XII- JRC) and operates the Community Programme for the Development of the Specialized Information Market in Europe (DG XIII) has implemented a Materials Databanks Demonstrator Programme aiming at the joint demonstration of a number of European factual materials databanks in a co-operative system accessible through the public packet switching network. The Demonstrator Programme is supported by harmonisation efforts which address operational, linguistic and terminology issues. The paper reviews the background, objectives and achievements of these activities and the international interactions on harmonisation and standardisation in the field of factual materials data systems.
