Highlighting the need and significance of material research, IIT Jodhpur, director, Santanu Chaudhury, said: “Material science provides significant scientific implementation not only in industry but also in our day-to-day life. IIT Jodhpur has a very vibrant material research group consisting of multidisciplinary researchers who aim to solve real-life problems for future applications. IUMRS-ICA 2022 will motivate researchers across the globe to initiate and implement ideas in materials science research areas.”

Addressing the academicians and researchers during IUMRS-ICA 2022, Materials Research Society of India (MRSI), president, SB Krupanidhi, said: “Material science is a community where all other scientific fields like physics, chemistry, and biology are contributing together for the development of society. As a researcher, instead of working for publications, one should be more concerned about societal growth, where material science works as connecting bridge to achieve all these aspects.”
