About the Forum

Materials form the fundament for human society. A new generation of materials may create a new generation of equipment, at the same time, lead to a new generation of industry development. Novel frontier materials can be an important driver for the strategic emerging industries. Shanghai University Leagues Forum for International Young Scholars Materials Frontier @ SHU, promoted by the construction of Science and Innovation Center in Shanghai and the Yangtze River Delta, will provide exchange opportunities on the cutting-edge achievements and development trends in materials fields, gather international outstanding scientists and engineers, build a world-class academic interaction platform to motivate idea collision and research cooperation.

The forum will invite renowned international young scholars using online “cloud TALK” on November 20th, 2021, to exchange the latest research trends, promote interdisciplinary collaboration, and facilitate development of materials science and technology.

About Shanghai University

Being a municipal university included in national “Project 211”, SHU is jointly constructed by the Ministry of Education, Shanghai Municipal People’s Government, and the State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense. SHU is among the first batch of pilot projects of high-level university construction in Shanghai, and is one of the universities that focus on building their preponderant disciplines into first-rate ones on the list of the Ministry of Education.

SHU has 1 State Key Laboratory, 1 training base of State Key Laboratory, 1 international united laboratory of the Ministry of Education, 3 bases under the “Overseas Expertise Introduction Project for Discipline Innovation” (111 Project), 3 key laboratories of the Ministry of Education, 2 engineering research centers of the Ministry of Education, 2 collaborative innovation centers in Shanghai, 7 key laboratories in Shanghai, 6 engineering and technological research centers in Shanghai, 5 specialized technical service platforms in Shanghai, 3 key laboratories in Shanghai universities and 1 engineering research center in Shanghai universities.

Upholding the motto of “making unremitting efforts; being concerned about the country and the people before anything else” and the spirit of “pursuing the truth and innovation”, SHU will strive to build itself into a world-class comprehensive research-oriented university with distinctive characteristics.

About School of Materials Science and Engineering

School of Materials Science and Engineering (SMSE) of Shanghai University has two first-level disciplines, “Materials Science and Engineering” and “Metallurgical Engineering”, and a State Key Laboratory of “Advanced Special Steel”. SMSE has 6 academicians, more than 20 national high-level talents and nearly 50 provincial and ministerial high-level talents. Based on the goal of supporting innovation-driven development strategies and serving the development of economy and society, SMSE built several high-level research teams and optimized discipline constructions to meet the needs of major strategic plans of the Yangtze River Delta , Shanghai and the whole country.

The Materials Genome Institute (MGI) of Shanghai University started in early 2012. MGI has well-equipped laboratory facilities and outstanding faculty members, including 5 academicians (4 part-time) of the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS) and the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE), 1 chief scientists of national 973 Projects, 4 distinguished young scholars of National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), and a large number of young scholars with doctoral degrees. In recent years, the materials genomics research of Shanghai University has been accelerating the research and development concept of materials such as “high degree of integration, integration of data and computing, research and application”, and has accumulated a great deal in scientific research, team building, platform architecture and personnel training. A lot of basic work has been done on database construction, integrated computing and software development, structural and physical representation, service and failure.
