University Collaborations

Of 90 LDRD projects funded in FY 2013, more than half (55 projects) involve university collaborators.  These projects supported 13 undergraduate students, 22 master's degree candidates, and 55 doctoral candidates.  Collaborations between university and national laboratory researchers foster creativity and opportunities for academic scientists to help find solutions to national challenges.  Such collaborations also support DOE objectives for nurturing the next generation of scientists and engineers.
