TMS MATERIALS/MANUFACTURING LEADERS SUMMIT
TMS is coordinating an ongoing process of shared learning and collaboration through its Materials/Manufacturing Leaders Summit series. The overarching goal of this effort is to establish a forum where diverse industry groups can identify common, pre-competitive opportunities in materials and manufacturing innovation, while also laying the groundwork for collaborative action that can accelerate realization of these opportunities among the materials and manufacturing communities.

Orlando Materials Innovation Principles

Developed as an outcome of the inaugural TMS Materials/Manufacturing Leaders Summit in March 2012, the Orlando Materials Innovation Principles offers guidance on pursuing collaborative efforts across manufacturing disciplines and sectors with the intent of accelerating the materials innovation process. Leaders from major corporations, academic centers, and government laboratories signed the Principles to make known their intent to support these concepts in time for TMS to publicly release the document at a May 2012 U.S. White House event. Additional signatories are welcomed.
