High-Throughput Experimental Materials Collaboratory (HTE-MC) Workshop

Why?

  • There is no brick and mortar high-throughput experimental facility devoted to a complete MGI approach to the development of even a single class of materials, let alone the many classes of materials (e.g., catalysts, corrosion-resistant coatings, lightweighting alloys) that are crucial to addressing national and global technology challenges
  • A major goal, therefore, should be an effort to deploy a federated network of high- throughput experimental (synthesis and characterization) tools, which are integrated with a materials data infrastructure. Such a "High-Throughput Experimental Materials Collaboratory" (a collaboratory can be defined as a "center without walls, in which researchers can perform their research without regard to physical location"), very appropriate for today’s "sharing economy," would accelerate the development of new materials via high-throughput experimental methodologies, integrated computational tools, machine learning/artificial intelligence, and a state-of-the-art materials data infrastructure.

Workshop Goals:

  • Socialize the HTE-MC concept among government, academic and industry stakeholders
  • Expand HTE-MC membership
  • Define technical, operational and business models for the HTE-MC
