Abstract—The European experience in creating a large-scale infrastructure that provides material modeling tasks during the development of new technologies is considered. The infrastructure combines information and computing resources and numerous services that allow one to apply a new business model in the field of high technology. The leading role in the organization of such an infrastructure is played by a system of ontologies for standardization of the conceptual apparatus appearing in the documents, models and software used. The main ideas in the implementation of modeling are systematized through the European Materials Modeling Ontology (EMMO), which is capable of expanding and covering new objects and research methods. The unique standards that underlie ontologies and cover almost all types of material objects, from atoms up to building materials, are described.
