Symposium Gives Industry Material for Growth

High-performance materials research will yield high-performance results when industry leaders and senior technologists convene to learn how NASA can help them acquire and develop new technology through partnership. NASA's Advanced Materials Symposium takes place May 29 - 31 at the Cleveland Marriott Downtown at Key Center, Cleveland.

Keeping with this year's theme, "New Directions in Advanced Materials Systems," leading researchers and program managers from across the Agency will give presentations on topics ranging from material development and commercialization to nanotechnology.

Designed to help industry better understand the recent developments, goals and visions of NASA's materials program, the symposium will also foster exchange between NASA personnel and business representatives in hopes of identifying current industry needs and commercial applications of the presented technologies.

More information on the symposium is available online:
