Materials Day 2018 is sponsored by Penn State’s Materials Research Institute. This year’s theme, “Grand Challenges Enabled by Materials,” will focus on six areas where Penn State can make significant advances to solving some of the 21st century’s most pressing challenges. Featuring breakout sessions with industry leaders, experts from federal agencies, and Penn State faculty, a keynote reception, and interactive poster session with over 100 faculty/student presenters, Materials Day 2018 is Penn State’s premier event for materials-related interdisciplinary science and engineering.
