During the meetings of the theory and modelling working group, within the MEL-ARI (Microelectronics Advanced Research Initiative) and NID-FET (Nanotechnology Information Devices-Future and Emerging Technologies) initiatives of the European Commission, we have been discussing the current status and the future perspectives of nanoscale device modelling. The outcome of such a discussion is summarized in the present paper, outlining the major challenges for the future, such as the integration of nonequilibrium phenomena and of molecular-scale properties. We believe that modelling has a growing importance in the development of nanoelectronic devices and must therefore make a move from physics to engineering, providing valid design tools, with quantitative predictive capabilities.
