Mission Innovation’s (MI) Clean Energy Materials Innovation Challenge held an international experts’ workshop on a fundamental element that underpins advancements in all energy areas: materials discovery. From 11th to 14th September, over 130 attendees representing 17 countries and the European Commission gathered in Mexico City to support the Innovation Challenge’s goal of accelerating the exploration, discovery, and use of new, high-performance, low-cost clean energy materials by at least ten times. Leading scientists from throughout the world identified and explored the most promising basic research opportunities for realising this goal. The results and conclusions of this expert workshop will be published in a detailed report that will be distributed to the 23 MI members and research institutions worldwide.
