On Tuesday, about 100 representatives from industry, universities and laboratories met at Fermilab for the Midwest launch of the Accelerator Test Facility Stewardship Pilot Program. The meeting was jointly hosted by Argonne National Laboratory and Fermilab to provide an opportunity for potential partners to learn more about the labs’ accelerator capabilities and infrastructure for the purpose of identifying specific candidate projects for the pilot program.

The pilot program plenary presentations are available online. Following the plenary session, attendees toured facilities at both labs and “speed dated” with accelerator experts.

Fermilab Director Nigel Lockyer kicked off the meeting with a presentation on current particle accelerator applications in industry, medicine and national security. He also discussed potential future accelerator applications. View a video of his presentation.
