MRS Innovation Source

MRS Innovation Source focuses on examples of best practices, success stories, interviews and editorials on current topics in innovation, commercialization and new product development using advances in materials. This resource complements the current MRS communications portfolio that focuses on the ever-expanding landscape of materials research—MRS Communications, MRS Bulletin, Materials360, Materials360 Online, Journal of Materials Research, MRS Energy & Sustainability—A Review Journal, MRS Online Proceedings Library and social media.

MRS also hosts the Technology Innovation Forum. The seventh Technology Innovation Forum at the 2014 MRS Spring Meeting focused on challenges and opportunities in commercializing materials research. (This event was recorded as part of a live stream from the 2014 MRS Spring Meeting; click here to learn more.)

MRS serves a global community of over 16,000 materials researchers from academia, industry and government. The society promotes interaction and idea-sharing through various venues, such as journals, meetings, conferences and educational outreach. This resource aims to broaden the dialogue among thought leaders in this field to accelerate the commercialization of exciting new materials research to benefit society.
