The race to improve global competitiveness is fueled by a drive to accelerate the discovery, development and commercialization of advanced materials. How do we move a newly discovered advanced material from the laboratory to the market at significantly reduced time and cost? How do we achieve the advances in materials and manufacturing technology needed for critical technologies? How do we form and build the infrastructure to create an integrated environment for this sustained achievement?

This is the challenge, and the solution is at the hands of current and future American innovators in science and engineering. Tomorrow’s engineers and scientists must be prepared for using computational tools, constructing and applying models throughout the research, development, and application cycle, and working in an open integrated environment. How do we prepare the next generation workforce and address the critical shortage of graduates and workers with the necessary math, science, and technology skills to keep pace with global competition? What are the critical contributions of industry, academia, and the federal government to workforce development that will yield a new generation of innovators that will excel at new materials development and commercialization for heightened U.S. economic competitiveness?

This panel of distinguished speakers with a wide range of experience will discuss views of workforce development to enable the next generation for materials innovation and global competitiveness.
