Mississippi State University/Argonne National Laboratory Collaboration Opportunities Norman D. Peterson Director, Government Relations September 9, 2013

2 Argonne – a vital part of the Department of Energy national laboratory complex
EFRC’s Hubs EERE programs CRADAs WFO Color dots respond to the mission areas of the DOE. Science labs maintain a vibrant U.S. effort in science and engineering as a cornerstone of our economic prosperity. Nuclear safety and security labs enhance nuclear security through defense, nonproliferation, and environmental efforts. Energy labs develop transformative science and technology solutions to meet U.S. energy challenges. Environmental management labs develop science-based solutions to address environmental waste streams.

Develop science-based solutions to global challenges Working to develop technologies to reduce energy usage, improve energy security, protect our environment A major engine of American competitiveness and innovation Research at Argonne has influenced medical, transportation and energy technologies. More than 11,000 scientific papers were published at Argonne from , and more than 500 technology transfers per year, on average, from Argonne is the hub of the Illinois research corridor – economic engine for entire state We actively collaborate with Illinois research institutions (U of I, IIT, SIU) Play key role in rolling out technologies, creating new start-ups in private sector

9 Argonne’s world-class suite of user facilities
Argonne Tandem Linear Accelerator System Argonne’s world-class suite of user facilities Advanced Photon Source Center for Nanoscale Materials Argonne Leadership Computing Facility These game-changing technologies are made possible by our unique user facilities. As a Department of Energy National Laboratory, we make available some of the best scientific equipment in the world – attracts thousands of researchers from universities, federal agencies, and the private sector each year. Argonne’s Advanced Photon Source is a source for high-energy x-rays, enabling experiments at extremely high speeds, temperatures, and pressures. Argonne is home to some of the world’s most powerful supercomputers, which are used by researchers from universities and private industry for experiments in computation and imaging. The Center for Nanoscale Materials uses an x-ray nanoprobe and advanced microscopes to allow imaging and measurements of nanomaterials. World-class facilities draw thousands of users each year, from universities across the nation and from hundreds of companies, established and start-ups Users include Abbott, BP Amoco Chemical, P&G, Caterpillar, Intel, Northrop Grumman, Pratt & Whitney, GE, IBM, NIH, Boeing, and U of Illinois, UChicago, Stanford, Harvard, Northwestern and Princeton Universities Play a critical role in supporting private industry in critical basic research Advanced Photon Source provides brightest storage ring-generated x-ray beams in the Western Hemisphere Used by more than 5,000 researchers from around the globe One of the most-used, most successful user facilities in the National Laboratory System. Electron Microscopy Center

10 Use-Inspired Research Technology Deployment
Using the national lab system to link basic science and industry Discovery Research Use-Inspired Research Applied R&D Technology Demo Technology Deployment National Lab priorities: To guide use-inspired fundamental research To address key problems with `dream teams’ of academic, industry, and laboratory scientists working collaboratively To accelerate transfer of science insights and technologies to industry Industry National labs Universities

11 Argonne is at the hub of America’s innovation heartland
Extraordinary number of research institutions within a half-day’s drive Of 2010 rankings of the world’s top universities compiled by Shanghai Jiao Tong University, 10 of the top 100 universities in the world within five-hour drive of Argonne. (expand radius to eight hours, and you get 15 of the top 100.) Of Carnegie Foundation’s for the Advancement of Teaching’s list of the top 108 U.S. research institutions, 13 are within five-hour drive. Some lesser-known labs – USDA’s National Center for Agricultural Utilization Research Brookings report, which included Kentucky, western New York, and western Pennsylvania The 21 largest Great Lakes metros alone are home to 32 major public and private research universities, which attract substantial federal research investment. The region produces approximately 36 percent of America’s science and engineering degrees each year. Recognized leadership in R&D. The Great Lakes region accounts for 33 percent of all academic and 30 percent of all industry R&D performed in the United States. Strength and specialization in energy, science and engineering. In FY 2006, the Department of Energy sent 26 percent of its federal R&D obligations to the Great Lakes states and is the second largest federal funder of industrial R&D in the region. Also in 2006, the National Science Foundation sent 30 percent of its R&D obligations there. Existing clean energy research investments and assets. The University of Illinois is a key research partner in the BP-funded, $500 million Energy Biosciences Institute, which aims to prototype new plants as alternative fuel sources. Toledo already boasts a growing solar industry cluster; Dow Corning’s Michigan facilities produce leading silicon and silicone-based technology innovations; and the Solar Energy Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the oldest of its kind in the world, has significant proficiency in developing practical uses for solar energy. Finally, the region is home to the largest U.S. nuclear utility (Exelon), the nation’s largest concentration of nuclear plants and some of the country’s leading university programs in nuclear engineering. Industry potential relevant to clean energy. Given their existing technological specializations, Midwestern industries have the potential to excel in the research and manufacture of sophisticated components required for clean energy, such as those used in advanced nuclear technologies, precision wind turbines and complex photovoltaics. Breadth in energy innovation endeavors and resources. In addition to universities and industry, the region’s research laboratories specialize in areas of great relevance to our national energy challenges, including the work on energy storage systems and fuel and engine efficiency taking place at Argonne National Laboratory, research in high-energy physics at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, and the work on bioenergy feedstocks, processing technologies and fuels occurring at the DOE-funded Great Lakes BioEnergy Research Center (GLBRC). Regional culture of collaboration. Finally, the universities of the Great Lakes area have a strong history of collaboration both among themselves and with industry, given their origins in the federal land-grant compact of market and social engagement. GLBRC—one of the nation’s three competitively awarded DOE Bioenergy Centers—epitomizes the region’s ability to align academia, industry and government around a single mission. Another example is the NSF-supported Blue Waters Project. This partnership between IBM and the universities and research institutions in the Great Lakes Consortium for Petascale Computation is building the world’s fastest computer for scientific work—a critical tool for advancing smart energy grids and transportation systems.
