Federal Funding Workshop Panel Discussion & Reception
Wednesday, March 14, 4-6 p.m.

"Funding Opportunities to Advance the Materials Genome Initiative"

Talk to the funders in this highly interactive session that will highlight funding opportunities related to the Materials Genome Initiative (MGI). Panelists will initially overview current MGI activities in their agencies and present a look to the future. Presentations will be brief allowing the majority of time for question and answers from the audience. Accommodations for one-to-one conversations with the funders will be incorporated into a networking reception afterwards. Reception sponsored by the Georgia Institute of Technology.
