Paper Title:
Materials Science and Engineering Opportunities for an Energy Efficient and Low Carbon Economy
  Abstract

The 21st Century faces grand challenges, and sustainable development for the planet is an issue that cannot be ignored. The role of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) is pivotal in addressing these societal grand challenges. In the keynote lecture the specific MSE areas will be discussed. In this paper, the context and the framework for these developmental areas will be presented.
