WASHINGTON, September 13, 2017 - The Energy Department (DOE) opened the application period for innovators to join the second cohort of Chain Reaction Innovations (CRI) at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL). CRI, one of DOE’s Lab-Embedded Entrepreneurship Programs, embeds top technical talent with ANL to perform early-stage research and development (R&D) that may lead to the launch of energy or manufacturing businesses in the future. The two-year postdoctoral research program addresses gaps in human capital development by providing stipends and institutional homes where talented postdoctoral scientific innovators can become first-time entrepreneurs. Up to six postdoctoral innovators will be chosen for CRI. Applicants may apply either indirectly or as a team of individuals. Successful applicants are selected based on their individual merits. EERE’s Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) supports early-stage applied R&D of new materials, information and processes that improve energy efficiency and clean energy products.
