MRS MISSION STATEMENT (Adopted by Council — June
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
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
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.
