About MRS®

MRS MISSION STATEMENT (Adopted by Council — June 2000)

The Materials Research Society (MRS) is an organization of materials researchers from academia, industry and government that promotes communication for the advancement of interdisciplinary materials research to improve the quality of life.

MRS VISION STATEMENT (Revised by Board — July 23, 2008)

The Materials Research Society will build a dynamic, interactive, global community of materials researchers to advance technical excellence by providing a framework in which the materials disciplines can convene, collaborate, integrate and advocate.

 

Founded in 1973, MRS now consists of over 16,000 members from the United States — as well as nearly 70 other countries. The interdisciplinary materials science society is different from that of single discipline professional societies because it encourages communication and technical information exchange across the various fields of science affecting materials.

MRS sponsors two major annual meetings offering approximately 100 topical symposia. The society recognizes professional and technical excellence, conducts symposium tutorials, and encourages technical interaction among college students through University Chapters, and among materials professionals through regional Sections.

MRS also promotes communication exchange through publication of symposium proceedings, MRS Communications, MRS Bulletin, Journal of Materials Research, and other publications related to current research activities.
