TMS-MRS Big Data Survey Highlighted at MGI Anniversary Event

Posted on: 06/23/2013
President Barack Obama launched the U.S. Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) in 2011, with the goal of doubling the pace of advanced materials discovery, innovation, manufacture, and commercialization. At a White House event on June 24, the second anniversary of the MGI was celebrated with an announcement of new initiatives sponsored by a number of organizations in support of the MGI’s goals.

The recently completed “big data” survey project jointly conducted by TMS and the Materials Research Society (MRS) was among those initiatives highlighted. More than 650 materials experts participated in the survey, with three-quarters saying they would participate in open data sharing if encouraged as a term/condition of funding or publication. Detailed survey results will be published soon via the TMS and MRS websites, publications, and e-newsletters.
