AFRL, National Science Foundation, academia converge in Miami Valley to accelerate materials discovery to deployment
12/22/2023 | By Gail L. Forbes
The Air Force Research Laboratory, the National Science Foundation, and representatives from some of the nation’s leading academic institutions recently joined forces in Ohio, for the NSF’s DMREF and AFRL Kickoff. The two-day event provided a rare opportunity for members of AFRL’s world-class science and technology workforce to share scientific plans with fellow materials researchers from some of the country’s most distinguished universities to accelerate the transition of new materials from design to deployment in support of the nation’s warfighters over the next four years.

In early 2023, the National Science Foundation (NSF) appointed Germano Iannacchione as the new Division Director of its Division of Materials Research (DMR)—a division with a critical objective to invest in the discovery, development, and design of new materials.
NSF supports 37 teams to create novel materials to address grand societal challenges and develop the scientific and engineering workforce of tomorrow.
Awards could range from $1.5-$2 million over four years.

What began as a small program with roughly 14 projects has now expanded to more than 200 projects. DMREF teams from universities across the U.S. collaborate to discover, develop, and help manufacture new materials.
Check back soon for upcoming events.

2021 HybriD3 Theory Training Workshop
This workshop, held virtually in January 2021, introduced students and other early-career scientists to the theory and practical applications of atomistic modeling techniques in materials science, chemistry, and condensed matter physics, particularly first-principles electronic structure calculations. Organizers offered a three-day program of lectures and simple hands-on sessions, designed to provide an entry point to the current most important, density-functional theory based simulation approaches in computational molecular and materials science.
