Many sustainability efforts focus on improving resource efficiency by creating materials and devices that are less energy, water and material intensive; however, 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 aimed at materials researchers of all career stages, from students and postdocs to faculty and industry researchers.
