The Energy Department today announced the opening of the application period for innovators to join the fourth cohort of the Cyclotron Road program at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Cyclotron Road, one of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Lab-Embedded Entrepreneurship Programs, embeds top technical talent with new ideas within Berkeley Lab as entrepreneurial researchers to address fundamental energy and manufacturing challenges identified by industry.

Energy and manufacturing drive economic growth and job creation, and innovation in these key sectors is critical to U.S. competitiveness. Critical gaps in today’s research ecosystem limit innovators’ access to training, scientific tools, and research funding needed to develop new concepts and advance ideas into application. The Lab-Embedded Entrepreneurship Programs, with a combined focus on both early-stage R&D and entrepreneurial development, enable researchers to ready breakthrough ideas for adoption by the private sector and fill a critical gap in human capital development.
