Abstract: Fast access to product specific materials data is one of the challenges in materials technology in order to make full use of the available materials potential. Material databases in combination with the Internet are powerful means to address this issue. The Joint Research Centre of the European Commission at Petten, The Netherlands (JRC) has recently launched the web-enabled Mat-DB for experimentally measured data, which is based on many years of experience in this field. The application is installed on the On-line Data Information Network (ODIN: https://odin.jrc.nl) and is offered to European R&D activities for the management and dissemination of their projects data and documentation. Furthermore, the JRC aims at creating a growing pool of publicly available materials data and analysis routines, which can be used in industry, research and education. A European materials data network could help to overcome the dispersion of effort and lack of coherence of EU research, which is due to inevitable fragmentation within and between the different countries and organizations. It is consistent with the ideas of the 7th Research Framework Programme of the European Commission: ‘Building the Europe of Knowledge’ and may contribute to the enlargement process through supporting candidate country integration.
