OSU Materials Week


Taking into consideration university guidelines regarding the international viral outbreak of 2019 coronavirus (COVID-19) and our own concern for the safety of invited speakers and attendees, the Institute for Materials Research has decided to cancel 2020 OSU Materials Week.


The health and well-being of our community, both internal and external to Ohio State, is of paramount importance to us. We appreciate your understanding and support as we take this step to ensure the safety of one another.


Each year, IMR dedicates one week in May to celebrate the innovative research and accomplishments of the materials community at The Ohio State University. The success of OSU Materials Week in the past 11 years has been due in no small part to the inclusion, generous participation and wide-ranging expertise of our community. We expected this year’s event to be no different. Thank you for your interest and willingness to take part in 2020 OSU Materials Week. We now look forward to continuing this celebration of research, innovation and collaboration at 2021 OSU Materials Week.
