Chaired by Professor Subra Suresh, former director of the National Science Foundation and current president of Carnegie Mellon University, the Elsevier Materials Science Council will undertake a raft of activities with Elsevier over the next three years to help support the research community in three ways: supporting the sharing and communication of scientific information and data through new technology platforms and pathways; helping researchers communicate the importance of materials science to the general public; and rewarding researchers, particularly those working in difficult conditions or in countries with limited infrastructure.
