Materials Genome Initiative Strategic Plan

The Materials Genome Initiative was launched in 2011 to accelerate the discovery, design, development, and deployment of new materials, at a fraction of the cost, by harnessing the power of data and computational tools in concert with experiment. The 2021 Materials Genome Initiative Strategic Plan updates and replaces the previous strategic plan released December 2014, and reflects the significant advances that have been made over the past ten years. This document provides a vision to align the MGI community across the continuum from research and development through deployment, and identifies goals for the next five years with objectives and actions to be taken by the community to advance the MGI.
