Support Grows for President Obama’s Materials Genome Initiative
During his June 24 speech on advanced manufacturing, President Obama unveiled the Materials Genome Initiative for Global Competitiveness (MGI), an ambitious new plan to double the speed with which the United States discovers, develops, and manufactures new materials. Since then, a growing number of companies, communities, universities, national labs, and scientific societies have made concrete commitments in support of the MGI. Below are some of the commitments that have been made. If you want to get involved, please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
