Presentation Title Identifying Multidisciplinary Research Opportunities in Ceramic Processing
Author(s) Michael P. Bakas
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Michael P. Bakas
Abstract Scope Multidisciplinary research can drive new breakthroughs and open up new fields of study, but identifying opportunities can be challenging. The commonly employed single investigator grants have technical and practical barriers that inhibit collaboration with other scientific disciplines. As a result, researchers often feel compelled to address by themselves technical challenges that might benefit from the insight of another discipline. As program manager for the Army Research Office's Synthesis and Processing Program, Dr. Bakas has been involved in the writing of three topics for the DoD Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative Program that have direct relevance to ceramic processing. Using the MURI topics as examples, Dr. Bakas will discuss ways to recognize potential multidisciplinary projects, expected obstacles to their development, and best practices for refining the concept into a well-defined research project with clear goals.
