EE15.4.05 - NSF Opportunities in Sustainable Materials Research 
March 30, 2016   10:30am - 11:00am

The National Science Foundation created an umbrella program in 2010 entitled, Science, Engineering and Education for Sustainability (SEES) that encouraged cross-disciplinary cooperation to address the complex systems-level problems related to sustainable development. The Division of Materials Research (DMR) actively participated in two programs under the SEES umbrella: Sustainable Energy Pathways (SEP) and Sustainable Chemistry, Materials and Engineering (SusChEM). This presentation will showcase some of the funded projects and highlight outcomes, especially those related to new research partnerships developed for working towards the sustainable development of materials. New opportunities at NSF including a new initiative started in FY15, Innovations at the Nexus of Food, Energy, and Water (INFEWS) will also be discussed.
