OnDemand Webinar Series


Incorporating Sustainability Principles into Your Research


Oct 11, 2016 12:00pm ‐ Oct 11, 2016 2:00pm

Description

Many materials researchers strive to contribute to technologies that are more “sustainable” than ones we use today. Often, these efforts focus on improving resource efficiency by creating materials and devices that are less energy, water, and material intensive. But for more sustainable technologies to be commercially viable and have a global impact, there are additional considerations, including raw material availability, product lifetime, social and economic dimensions, and how best to balance adverse short-term impacts with potential long-term gains. Instructors Tatiana Vakhitova and Alan Rae show 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 manufacture. This webinar is aimed at materials researchers of all career stages, from students and postdocs to faculty and industry researchers.
