Several special events took place at the 2022 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit that contributed to the materials discussion. MRS-TV interviewed some of the organizers of these events.
Materials Needs for Energy Sustainability by 2050: Is Hydrogen the Fuel of Future?
There are high hopes for the use of hydrogen to help decarbonize transportation, industry and power generation. Materials science has an important part to play. Materials advances are needed to improve the performance and affordability of existing H2-based technologies, enable new technologies capable of replacing fossil fuel-based systems and provide alternatives for materials that may have economic or sociopolitical limitations in their supply chains.
40 Years of Semiconductor Research Corporation
The 2022 MRS Spring Meeting featured a panel discussion with experts in the field of semiconductors from industry and academia who discussed the 2030 Decadal Plan for semiconductors. MRS TV speaks with one of the panelists from this session.
Bridging the Gap Between Academia and Industry
Deciding between a career in academia or industry is one of the most critical decisions for students and early-career scientists. In the “Bridging the Gap Between Academia and Industry,” panelists focused on factors to consider when transitioning from academia to industry (and vice versa), which could include career advancement, salary, work-life balance, workplace culture as well as individual skills, qualifications, and career goals. MRS TV spoke with event moderators and co-organizers Eva Hemmer and Elisabetta Ruggeri about the event.
