The International Union of Materials Research Societies has pledged to work with International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) and other Unions, to make the ‘2022 International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development’ a resounding success.
The International Union of Materials Research Societies, IUMRS, says it has fully embraced the ‘International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development 2022’ (IYBSSD2022).
IUMRS strongly supports basic science research and education under the broad banner of materials science, a discipline that is massively interdisciplinary, involving physics, chemistry, mathematics, biology, biomedicine and engineering.
Working with IUPAP, other unions
IUMRS, in a blog post, expressed her commitment to work collaboratively with the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) and other Unions in partnership, to make this special year a huge success.
“Through its Meeting Commission members, IUMRS can play an important role in planning and organising events, as well as promoting IYBSSD through IUMRS communications channels and its Adhering Bodies.
Special events for basic sciences
“We will also plan to hold special events or forums highlighting different aspects of ‘basic science for all’ at our sponsored conferences held in 2022. IUMRS is committed to enhancing global education in materials science and we believe we can contribute to initiatives in basic science education during IYBSSD.
“Finally, IUMRS is excited to be a founding Union and member of the organising Unions for the IYBSSD”.
