CNGMD's Mission

The Center for Next Generation of Materials Design (CNGMD) was an Energy Frontier Research Center funded by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science from 2014-2020. CNGMD’s objective was to dramatically transform the discovery of functional energy materials through multiple-property search, incorporation of metastable materials into predictive design, and the development of theory to guide materials synthesis.

CNGMD's Goals

Goal 1: Design and discover new energy materials
Goal 2: Develop foundational tools
Goal 3: Incorporate metastable materials
Goal 4: Develop theory-guided
Goal 5: Promote materials design to broader community
