2016 MRS Spring Meeting


Tutorial EE15.03 - Part III: Crossing Disciplinary Boundaries - Challenges and Successes


Mar 28, 2016 1:00pm ‐ Mar 28, 2016 5:00pm

Description

Materials enable technologies and infrastructure that play a crucial role in worldwide development and that increasingly impact the earth’s climate, water and resources. To identify pathways towards sustainable development, students and researchers must appreciate the multiple factors involved using a systems perspective. What is the balance sheet of impacts considering material sourcing, manufacturing, operation and end of life? What are the direct, indirect and unintended consequences?


Understanding these issues requires frameworks for analysis, insights across disciplines and effective means to engage participants in topics that are often outside their “comfort zone” of knowledge. This tutorial presented effective means to teach these approaches based on the extensive and complementary experience of the instructors. But in addition to educating the upcoming generation of materials researchers, this tutorial appealed to today’s materials scientists, engineers and technology managers who seek to identify, articulate, and implement changes that improve sustainability while enhancing the bottom line of their organizations.
