Our mission is to create services that users can easily simulate materials with minimal effort, and furthermore, to create “square of materials” gathering all information about materials around the world .

In addition, we are trying to activate the Korean material industry and to help those who want to start material simulation by sharing various information for free through a technology blog and running MatSQ forum.
