AMPP Research Program

The Research Program Committee (RPC) provides many avenues for both AMPP members and nonmembers to participate with the program. Through our interconnected committee structure within AMPP, we provide a platform for all material performance and protection related research stakeholders to enhance and deliver their technical understanding of various subject matters.

Ways to get involved

Research Community of Interest

Our Research Community of Interest (found below) is designed to bring materials protection and performance research professionals together from all over the globe. This community of interest provides them with a centralized platform to discuss current issues, new and emerging technologies, and ways to volunteer with the AMPP Research Program on a continuous basis.
