The Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy will host a workshop, co-sponsored by the Materials for Energy and Sustainable Development Group at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), on the next steps for their respective programs in discovery and process design of advanced energy materials.
The Federal Government has made substantial investment in infrastructure to enable materials discovery and design, including advanced simulation tools, algorithms, software, data analysis, and experimental techniques. AMO and NIST are interested in leveraging these federal investments to propel the science of materials discovery and design forward. AMO is interested in moving applications of artificial intelligence and machine learning beyond materials design and discovery to process design and development in order to incorporate materials processing and manufacturing factors. NIST would like to develop and deploy a federated network of high-throughput experimental tools, which are integrated with a materials data infrastructure in order to accelerate the development of new, advanced materials.
Information from this workshop will be used to determine how best to coordinate next steps and efficiently leverage the ongoing research in advanced materials conducted in academia, industry, and government research laboratories.
