UCSB awarded $15 million by Dow to establish collaborative institute for materials research and education
Date:10/11/2011

(Santa Barbara, Calif.) The Dow Chemical Company has awarded UC Santa Barbara up to $15 million to establish a collaborative research initiative that will help shape the future of technology in areas that will benefit society. The Dow Materials Institute at UCSB will educate future scientists and engineers and advance the discovery of revolutionary new materials with applications that range from novel polymers to next-generation microelectronics.

The pioneering institute will be housed in the Materials Research Laboratory (MRL), a National Science Foundation Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) that is widely recognized as one of the top materials research facilities in the world. UCSB is among 11 leading U.S. research universities that has partnered with Dow to "accelerate research and stimulate collaborative innovation in traditional scientific fields important to the company and the nation's future."

"This new partnership with the Dow Chemical Company is dedicated to inspiring a new age of scientific achievement in the United States through collaborative research and interactions with industry, thereby serving as a catalyst to transform people's lives," said Craig J. Hawker, director of the MRL and professor of materials. "By actively engaging in productive partnerships with industry, the MRL with National Science Foundation MRSEC support has proven to be an economic engine here and around the world."

Materials science is a core area of global interest due to its contributions to manufacturing processes and innovative products. The Dow Materials Institute will build on groundbreaking fundamental research supported by the National Science Foundation, with enormous potential for new product development to enhance the U.S. economy, Hawker said.

"This unique, industry-leading institute will give Dow direct access to breakthrough technologies and enable new opportunities for greater innovation, while d
