The grand challenges of our time, like providing energy and water for everybody while limiting the ecological footprint, require global collaboration in all scientific areas. In this sense, MSE 2016 will help to foster networks around the world putting a particular emphasis on graduate students. For this, MSE 2016 with the partner societies MRS and TMS based in the guest land USA spans the entire range in materials science from functional bio- and nanomaterials all the way to advanced structural materials.
