Since 2011, Rice University and the University of Mainz in Germany have engaged in a PhD student exchange program, which has since become a part of the Toulouse-Mainz Scholar Exchange Program of the Applied Physics Graduate Program. Administered by the Smalley-Curl Institute the program has since successfully placed Rice students at Mainz, and in turn research groups at Rice have hosted graduate students from Mainz, for a duration of up to six months. The strength and synergy in materials science between Rice and Mainz are truly remarkable. In order to further strengthen scientific ties with the research capabilities present at Mainz, the Rice-Mainz Materials Science Workshop will bring faculty from both institutions together for several days of seminar talks, poster sessions, and networking opportunities among faculty and students.
