The mission of C3D is to focus Brookhaven Lab's diverse expertise
in scientific data on the defining science challenges of our time, to consolidate and capitalize on the
Lab's existing capabilities, and to leverage multiple DOE investments and BNL's international leadership
and collaborations. C3D brings under one umbrella all the data centric expertise at BNL and its
collaborating institutions and to use these capabilities to analyze, simulate, and predict complex
phenomena important to many areas of science.
One of ten national laboratories overseen and primarily funded by the Office of Science of the
U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Brookhaven National Laboratory conducts research in the physical,
biomedical, and environmental sciences, as well as in energy technologies and national security.
Brookhaven Lab also builds and operates major scientific facilities available to university, industry
and government researchers. Brookhaven is operated and managed for DOE's Office of Science by Brookhaven
Science Associates, a limited-liability company founded by the Research Foundation for the State
University of New York on behalf of Stony Brook University, the largest academic user of Laboratory
facilities, and Battelle, a nonprofit applied science and technology organization.
