Call for Papers – From Lab to Pilot, from Pilot to Commercial Production: Analysis and Perspectives from the ARPA-E Materials Science Community

In this special issue authors from different energy technology areas in the ARPA-E community are invited to provide analysis and perspectives on their work to bring a materials innovation developed in a university or small-company laboratory to the pilot scale, from the pilot scale to commercial production, or from laboratory all the way through to commercial production. Authors are encouraged to include both quantitative analysis of the steps taken (e.g., production volumes at different scales, sample size, sample-to-sample variation), as well as knowledge gained from efforts as they progress.

The issue will provide to future innovators valuable perspectives on how to approach their work, as well as giving public and private sector funders additional perspectives on the challenges that innovators face and steps that may be taken to improve the innovation-to-manufacturing process.
