NQCG is supporting the development of descriptors for broad groups of nanomaterials and nanotechnology vocabularies for use in database development, big data processing, analysis and integration. Example nanocarbon nomenclatures are used for integration of physical/chemical properties and data in computational ontologies. Building model ontologies is a good method to test nomenclatures. For example, integration of numerical data requires a more specific nomenclature than qualitative properties.

NQCG's primary research interest is the realization of quantum simulators capable of complex computations in the fields of nanoscience and continuum mechanics.


NQCG is developing an open semantic e-infrastructure system and international collaborative environment for open-source research, standardization and innovation in future and emerging convergent technologies and the integration of state-of-the-art techniques of ontology design.
