U.S. presents Materials Genome Initiative strategic plan
The National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) is the principal means by which the U.S. Executive Branch coordinates science and technology policy across the diverse entities that make up the Federal research and development enterprise. A primary objective of the NSTC is to ensure that science and technology policy decisions and programs are consistent with the President's stated goals.
The strategic plan provides a vision to align the Materials Genome Initiative community across the continuum from research and development through deployment, and identifies goals for the next five years with objectives and actions to be taken by the community to advance the Materials Genome Initiative.
Through an examination of the current materials research and implementation landscape, the strategy document defines three primary goals for the next five years:
- Unify the materials innovation infrastructure
- Harness the power of materials data
- Educate, train, and connect the materials R&D workforce
Achieving these three goals is deemed essential to U.S. competitiveness in the 21st century and will help to ensure that the United States maintains global leadership in innovation of emerging materials technologies in sectors including health, defense, and energy, and to broadly support technologies of the future.
