Registration Now Being Accepted for NIST MGI Grand Challenges Summit Webinars

Posted on: 08/01/2013
The U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is hosting a series of webinars in early August to solicit feedback on the five materials technology areas that comprised the U.S. Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) Grand Challenges Summit held in June. The purpose of the Summit was to identify the key challenges and opportunities where the MGI should focus its efforts.

Separate webinars will be conducted for each of the five technology areas examined at the Summit. Each will open with a 20 minute overview to report the findings, followed by a 15 minute feedback session in which attendees can offer comments and ask questions. The webinars will be recorded and posted on the NIST website at a later date.

The webinars are scheduled as follows, along with registration information:
