Information session on new Laboratory Directed R&D initiative – tomorrow at 2 p.m.

Fermilab has instituted a Laboratory Directed Research and Development program to support employee-initiated proposals that are novel and cutting edge and that explore the forefront of science and technology.

One-page preliminary proposals for LDRD are due May 9, and full proposals will be due May 23.

The program will enhance the laboratory’s ability to carry out its own mission, as well as that of DOE, in areas that are outside our current programs and projects but that are well-aligned with the strategic goals of the laboratory.

William Wester, LDRD coordinator, will present an information session in Curia II on Wednesday, April 23, from 2-3 p.m. A repeat of the information session will be given in One East the following Tuesday, April 29, from noon-1 p.m.

All are invited to attend and learn more about this new initiative at the lab. Contact William Wester at x2113 with questions.
