The Materials Genome Initiative: The role of theoretical sciences in innovating cleantech
Monday, November 24, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM (PST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Ever heard of the Materials Project (materialsproject.org)? By computing properties of all known materials, the Materials Project aims to remove guesswork from materials design in a variety of applications. By providing materials researchers with the information they need to design better, the Materials Project aims to accelerate innovation in materials research and in cleantech.
Come see the founders of the Materials Project, Gerd Ceder (R. P. Simmons Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and Kristin Persson (Staff Scientist, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory), present on the success and history of the Materials project with a focus on cleantech. The talk is aimed for a broad audience (maybe you haven't taken a science class since highschool) and still interesting for experts in density functional theory. The event will consist of a 30 minute talk followed by Q&A.
Please RSVP so we can get a head count on the amount of pizza to order.
Location: Haas C325
Time: 6pm to 7pm
