Materials Innovation Platforms (MIP)

MIPs embrace the paradigm set forth by the Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) which strives to “discover, manufacture, and deploy advanced materials in half the time and at a fraction of the cost.”  Platforms respond to the increasing complexity of conducting materials research that requires the close collaboration of multidisciplinary teams who have access to cutting edge tools.
The 2DCC-MIP is funded by NSF cooperative agreement DMR-1539916.
