Ongoing and Future Activities


The workshops identified possible areas for mutually beneficial collaborations. They also led to a number of major recommendations including:

  1. Promoting virtual institutes via the internet with video capabilities for distance conferencing and learning;
  2. Organizing and coordinating exchange science and education programs at all professional levels;
  3. Developing a materials world net that will act as a resource for research and education (e.g., a searchable database containing materials properties, publications, facilities, instruments, experts);
  4. Establishing mechanisms for long-term collaborations among academia, industrial, and government laboratories; and
  5. Enhancing public awareness of the contributions of materials science and technology.
