Materials Science and Technology: Challenges for the Chemical Sciences in the 21st Century 1:55 DANIELE. MORSE—UNIVERSITY OFCALIFORNIA, SANTABARBARA 2:20 DISCUSSION 2:40 BREAKOUT SESSIONS Breakout questions: What major discoveries or advances related to materials have been made in the chemical sciences during the last several decades? What is the length of time for them to show impact? What are the societal benefits of research in the chemical sciences? What are the intangible benefits, for example, in health and quality of life? What problems exist in the chemical sciences? Has there been a real or sustained decline in research investment in either the public or the private sector? Has there been a shift in offshore investment? 3:45 BREAK 4:00 Reports from breakout sessions (and discussion) 5:00 RECEPTION 6:00 BANQUET—DINNER SPEAKER: DIANE A.

DUBOIS—SRIINTERNATIONAL 9:10 DISCUSSION 9:30 BREAKOUT SESSIONS Breakout questions: What are the materials-related issues in the chemical sciences, and what opportunities and needs result for integrating research and teaching, broadening the participation of underrepresented groups, improving the infrastructure for research and education, and demonstrating the value of these activities to society? What returns can be expected on investment in chemical sciences? How does the investment correlate with scientific and economic progress? What feedback exists between chemical industry and university research in the chemical sciences? What are the effects of university research on industrial competitiveness, maintaining a technical work force, and developing new industrial growth (e.g., in polymers, materials, or biotechnology)? Are there examples of lost opportunities in the chemical sciences that can be attributed to failure to invest in research?
