Elsevier Materials Science Council

Commencing in 2014, the 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.

Materials in Society lecture series

From construction and electronics, through to energy and medicine; materials science and engineering has made significant and enduring contributions to the lives of every human being. We're helping highlight the impact materials science has on our everyday lives in a series of online lectures that everyone can access, understand and appreciate.

Awards

Elsevier awards researchers and research organizations throughout the world who have been credited with outstanding achievements and are making a significant contribution to the advancement of their field, thereby having a positive influence on our society.
