The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is well-known for supporting the research and development of cutting-edge energy technologies. Less known is that the agency supports basic research across a vast array of disciplines, from biomedicine and environmental studies to high-performance computing and physics. DOE also offers research support for graduate students and early career researchers with an interest in DOE’s energy development and security mission. With the Biden Administration’s commitment to combatting climate change and supporting innovation, DOE is expected to receive significant funding over the next few years to expand its research portfolio. This will provide new grant opportunities for a wide variety of researchers across the agency including through the Office of Science, applied energy programs, ARPA-E, and the National Laboratories. Join the Office of Research and BU Federal Relations to learn how to navigate DOE’s extramural research opportunities. Griffin Reinecke from Lewis-Burke Associates will provide an overview of DOE funding opportunities and guidance on engaging with program managers, and BU faculty Jennifer Bhatnagar, Roscoe Giles, and Indara Suarez will offer their insights on successfully working with the agency. The panel will conclude with audience questions.
