Plasma Science: Enabling Technology, Sustainability, Security and Exploration


Plasma Science and Engineering transforms fundamental scientific research into powerful societal applications, from materials processing and healthcare to forecasting space weather. The National Academies' new report, Plasma Science: Enabling Technology, Sustainability, Security and Exploration, discusses the importance of plasma research, identifies important grand challenges for the next decade, and makes recommendations on funding and workforce. Learn more about the report by attending our virtual report briefing on Thursday, May 28, 2020 at 2:30pm ET, where members of the committee will discuss the key findings and recommendations in the report and take questions from the audience.
