A nationwide partnership that accelerates the discovery, development and manufacturing of new materials.

About Us

We’re launching a nationwide dialogue to connect academia, industry and government stakeholders to fulfill the goals of
the Materials Genome Initiative.

Partners include: Georgia Tech, University of Michigan, and the University of Wisconsin.

The Materials Genome Initiative

The Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) was announced by President Barack Obama on June 2011 to accelerate the development
and deployment of new materials with the rallying phrase
“half the time at half the cost.”

Building an Integrated MGI Accelerator Network Workshop

150 leaders and stakeholders from academia, industry and government explored how distributed experimental, computational, and materials information might be networked to realize the MGI vision.
