The Acta Materialia Materials and Society Award Special Symposium
Date:Tuesday, March 5, 2013, 2:00-5:00 p.m.
Location:Lila Cockrell Theater, San Antonio Convention Center
 


SCOPE
Investment in Research and Development (R&D) is a critical indicator of a nation's innovative capacity and a precursor to its future growth, productivity and sustainability. As the global economy has grown and evolved, so has the conduct of R&D. This symposium will provide perspectives on how R&D is conducted at the national, industrial, and individual levels in different parts of the world. In addition, it will address the critical connections between fundamental R&D and development of new materials technologies. Implications for materials science will also be examined from different application perspectives, such as electronics, energy, transportation and health care. Understanding these trends and their impacts on the materials science and engineering enterprise are a must for 21st Century planning. The session will be moderated by Kevin Hemker of Johns Hopkins University, chair of the TMS Public and Governmental Affairs Committee.
