STAM-WPI Joint Workshop "Near Future Frontier Forecast by Materials Science"

Date: June 20 (Wed), 2018

Time: 14:00-16:00



The importance of materials science is becoming greater every day to build a sustainable society. In particular, developing novel high-performance materials for energy harvesting, energy saving, and environmental cleanup is one of the most important challenges in materials science, and many studies aiming to solve such problems are in progress also in Japan. This time, researchers from the four WPI centers related to materials science and editorial board members of Science and Technology of Advanced Materials (STAM) will gather at E-MRS 2018 Spring Meeting and hold STAM-WPI Joint Workshop entitled “Near Future Frontier Forecasted by Materials Science” which showcases the Japanese activities to create the future society through materials research. The organizers hope that many participants in the E-MRS Meeting join this workshop and consider the near future frontier together.
