NSF EFRI-2DARE/DMREF-2D/MIP Grantees Meeting


The National Science Foundation (NSF) Grantees Meeting brings together active researchers in the field of 2D materials and devices funded under Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation Two-Dimensional Atomic-layer Research and Engineering (EFRI-2DARE), Designing Materials to Revolutionize and Engineering our Future (DMREF) and Materials Innovation Platform (MIP) programs to review progress, assess the current status of the field and identify new directions and opportunities for future developments.  A specific goal of the meeting is to encourage the application of Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) principles and the use of data-analytics in current research.  The interactions are facilitated through a combination of research presentations, focused lectures and interactive brainstorming activities.  At the meeting, participants will have the opportunity to form collaborative teams comprised of two or more EFRI/DMREF/MIP participants to explore new research directions that employ transformative materials data analytics and MGI principles.  The meeting will culminate with short white paper presentations from the collaborative teams.


  1. To review the 2DARE EFRI projects and assess the current status of the field of 2D Materials and Devices, specifically focused on recent progress, challenges, and opportunities.

  2. To enable the 2D community to accelerate the discovery and development of materials and devices through the use of MGI principles, specifically including the use of data-analytics.

  3. To facilitate interactions and collaborations among EFRI, DMREF, and MIP PIs in order to strengthen teams.

  4. To facilitate collaborations for white paper submissions onsite that include two or more EFRI/DMREF/MIP teams for supplemental funding on potentially transformative materials data-analytics and materials genome efforts.

  5. To provide educational and outreach opportunities associated with 2D Materials and Devices, their Engineering Applications and the MGI.
