New Outlooks on Materials Data and Science

Emerging materials are essential to advance defense, healthcare, clean energy, and economic security, however the time to bring a new material to market after initial discovery can take 20 or more years. Accelerating the entry of new materials to industry is a critical 21st century challenge that will require a multidisciplinary approach that spans traditional materials research, computation, and data sciences.

IMat leadership has been active in publishing position pieces and novel contributions to next generation materials data science and design approaches in early 2019. We invite you to explore these new topics below:

Future Workforce for Materials Innovation

Our researchers of tomorrow will need to expand the boundaries of traditional materials disciplines.

Accelerating Discovery & Development

Using interdisciplinary collaboration and strategic partnerships is critical. FLAMEL establishes new models to this end.

Shared Resources Initiatives

The materials community has access to an extensive array of both centralized and distributed research facilities across campus, including the Materials Characterization Facility.

E-Collaboration, Data Sciences & Informatics

IMat links research teams and enhances access of data. MATIN is one way of making this possible.
