Digitalization and Materials Science

Digital science is a key player in our quest to meet sustainability challenges. It is creating new opportunities, including intelligent control and secure monitoring of numerous processes, and enables new perspectives, for instance through digital twins. Empa, as one of the main drivers of innovation in Switzerland, strives to accelerate this digital transformation with smart materials and new technologies – with humans always taking center stage.

Digital Twins to improve Efficiency and Decision-Making

Analyzing large amounts of data is a daily challenge for organizations across different industries. Simplifying (such complex systems) is thus key to remain competitive and sustainable. Technologies, such as digital twins, serve exactly that purpose.
