What is JUAMI?
The Joint US-Africa Materials Initiative (JUAMI), founded in 2012, aims to build materials science research and collaborations between the United States and Africa and to develop ties between young materials researchers in both regions through a series of international schools and workshops taught by leading materials science researchers. The first JUAMI school was held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, from December 9 - 21, 2012, on the topic of materials for sustainable energy. The 2013 JUAMI Symposium, part of the Africa MRS meeting, reviewed what has been accomplished in JUAMI's first year and promoted a vision for the future of international materials science collaboration. The 2016 workshop is a continuation of this effort.
