A presentation on the progress of the Materials Genome Initiative.
The Materials Genome Initiative, launched in 2011, was started to bring together the best minds in materials research to help businesses discover, develop, and deploy new materials at a faster rate than traditional industry timelines.
The Materials Genome Initiative was established as a collaboration to advance materials into innovative products such as light-weight cars, more efficient solar cells, tougher body armor, and future spacecraft much faster and at a fraction of the cost than it has taken in the past.
