Incorporating Sustainability Principles into Your Research

  Materials Research Society Foundation

Many sustainability efforts focus on improving resource efficiency by creating materials and devices that are less energy, water and material intensive. But to be commercially viable and have a global impact, researchers need to balance adverse short-term impacts with potential long-term gains.

Learn how to incorporate sustainability principles into your research in a more comprehensive way while considering the real-world application of these principles to product design and manufacturing.

This seminar is offered at Spring and Fall Meetings and is aimed at materials researchers of all career stages, from students and postdocs to faculty and industry researchers.



In this MRS TV interview from the 2017 MRS Spring Meeting, Alan Rae of IncubatorWorks discusses the importance of incorporating sustainability principles into research in a more comprehensive way.


In this MRS TV interview from the 2016 MRS Spring Meeting, Tatiana Vakhitova discusses ways to incorporate sustainability principles into research while considering the real-world application of these principles to product design and manufacture.
