The NSUF convenes first Partner Facilities Working Group Meeting

The Nuclear Science User Facilities (NSUF) hosted the first NSUF Partner Facilities Working Group meeting May 24-25 at the Center for Advanced Energy Studies (CAES) in Idaho Falls, ID. The NSUF establishes partnerships with facilities that have unique research capabilities to link intellectual capital with nuclear research infrastructure to fulfill the mission of the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Nuclear Energy (DOE-NE). The working group meeting aimed to provide a formal venue to identify and to capture programmatic input from the NSUF Partner Facilities.

“The NSUF Partner Facilities Working Group meeting provided the partner facilities with an avenue to self-organize in order to increase their involvement in programmatic decisions,” said NSUF Director Rory Kennedy, PhD. “This initial working group meeting established a valuable baseline for evaluating shared interests and concerns among the participating institutions.”
