Awardees announced for Argonne’s new Program Development Rotation opportunity
The Argonne Commercialization Council (ACC) and the Technology Development and Commercialization (TDC) Division are pleased to announce the awardees who will make up the first cohort of Argonne’s new Program Development Rotation opportunity.
The Program Development Rotation, which targets early and mid-career researchers who have a vision for building a technology program, provides participants with resources, training and time to develop a growth strategy for their proposed program. Resources include mentorship from a senior leader at Argonne and access to a dedicated support team. The ultimate goal of the rotation program is to help researchers build a technology program that can scale to approximately $10 million in sponsored research within three to five years.
The awardees and their respective proposed programs are:
- Aaron Greco (ES): New areas of engineering application for the energy and manufacturing industries (leveraging tribology)
- Ralph Muehleisen (ES): New developments in urban science and engineering
- Thomas Wall (GSS) and Randall Gentry (EVS): Decision support for climate change impacts; computational risk algorithms and climate-related analytical products
The ACC and TDC received high-quality proposals from 18 qualified candidates and would like to acknowledge all who applied for their initiative and their efforts in developing and submitting strong proposals. TDC is continuing discussions with those who were not selected for the first cohort, with an eye toward supporting their pursuit of their ideas, as relevant.
The awardees will begin the Program Development Rotation on Oct. 1, 2016.
