The spoke "Multiscale modeling & Engineering applications" deals on the one hand with computational aspects related to "Multiscale modeling" and on the other hand with the use of HPC and Big Data tools for applications in the various fields of Science and Engineering. The Spoke includes expertise in the development of digital twins and model-based design methodologies, and use of simulation techniques that make extensive use of advanced numerical models implemented at major research centres, and via the intensive use of HPC and Big Data facilities. The characteristic of this Spoke is the ability to globally address problems that span several disciplines, involving multiple scales (from the sub-nanoscopic scale of electrons and atoms, to mesoscale and macroscale), heterogeneous and large datasets, and interdisciplinary and multi-physics approaches, combined with the unique ability to translate numerical and analytical technologies into applications of direct interest and use for different scientific and engineering fields at national and international level. Bridging the gap between the scales and developing algorithms and codes able to extract the computational power of modern computer architectures (e.g. massively parallel and with GPUs, FPGAs or future quantum computing accelerators) is a key for the development of enabling technology for a huge variety of Engineering applications in the view of fostering the development of a knowledge-based society.
