Meetings & Events

MRS Joint Meetings

To forward the mission, vision and values of the society, MRS builds interdisciplinary bridges between scientific communities that can span both topical areas of interest to our constituents as well as geographic boundaries.

We partner with other organizations on a case-by-case basis to provide a framework in which the various materials disciplines can convene, collaborate, integrate and advocate.

If you would like to propose a joint activity of interest to the MRS constituency, please contact Patricia Hastings at hastings@mrs.org for further information.
