The Subcommittee on the Materials Genome Initiative (SMGI), under the NSTC Committee on Technology, coordinates Federal efforts in support of the goals of MGI and identifies policies that will accelerate deployment of advanced materials. The SMGI includes representatives from each agency participating in MGI. The SMGI developed this strategic plan to outline the near-term steps the Federal government will take to achieve the vision put forth by MGI. It defines the high-level goals and priorities for the Initiative by describing each of four strategic goals and the objectives and near-term milestones needed to meet these goals. This strategic plan also describes scientific and technical challenges identified by experts from the materials science and engineering communities that impede progress in nine materials classes and that MGI can help address. This input came through two Grand Challenge Summits held in 2013 for stakeholders from academia and industry (details available online at http://www.ibbr.umd.edu/ NISTMGISummit). The experimental and computational tools and scientific cultural evolution emerging from MGI can be directly applied to overcoming these scientific and technical challenges, and others that will emerge in the future, to meet the President’s directive for more rapid discovery and deployment of advanced materials. The SMGI is seeking public comment on this strategic plan (available at http:// www.nist.gov/mgi/upload/MGIStrategicPlan-2014.pdf) in advance of finalizing the document for publication.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In June 2011, President Obama launched the 
Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) to help scientists and innovators 
discover, develop, and deploy new materials twice as fast as today. 
What began with a modest investment by four Federal agencies only three 
years ago has now expanded to include participation by a wide range of 
public and private stakeholders, including universities, companies, 
professional scientific societies, and Federal agencies.
    At the Federal level, MGI is managed within the framework of the 
National Science and Technology Council (NSTC), the Cabinet-level 
council that coordinates science and technology across the Federal 
government. The Subcommittee on the Materials Genome Initiative (SMGI), 
under the NSTC Committee on Technology, coordinates Federal efforts in 
support of the goals of MGI and identifies policies that will 
accelerate deployment of advanced materials. The SMGI includes 
representatives from each agency participating in MGI.
    The SMGI developed this strategic plan to outline the near-term 
steps the Federal government will take to achieve the vision put forth 
by MGI. It defines the high-level goals and priorities for the 
Initiative by describing each of four strategic goals and the 
objectives and near-term milestones needed to meet these goals. This 
strategic plan also describes scientific and technical challenges 
identified by experts from the materials science and engineering 
communities that impede progress in nine materials classes and that MGI 
can help address. This input came through two Grand Challenge Summits 
held in 2013 for stakeholders from academia and industry (details

emerging from MGI can be directly applied to overcoming these 
scientific and technical challenges, and others that will emerge in the 
future, to meet the President's directive for more rapid discovery and
