Role of Advanced Materials in Transforming India into a Global Leader

August 13, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Materials are the backbone of the development of any country. The importance of materials has been realized from time immemorial to the extent that the civilizations are named after materials such as “stone-age”, “bronze-age”, “silicon-age”, etc. It has been proven over centuries that the countries that have advanced in the development of superior materials have become economically stronger and have become power centres in the world. It is important for India to focus on the development and application of advanced materials for it to become a global leader. Centuries before any of the current leading economies of the world were born, India had a great heritage in materials and has been an epicenter of advanced materials development. It is important that India focuses on the development of advanced materials for health care, energy security, infrastructure, transport, etc., for it to reinvent itself as a global leader. The speaker, in his talk, would focus on a few examples of advanced materials with immense potential that can transform India into an enviable position globally. Discipline/Coordinating Entity: Materials Science and Engineering
