New York City-based Urban Tech Hub, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Technology Transitions, will continue its summer webinar series on DOE funding and partnering opportunities on Thursday, July 23 at 1 p.m. EDT.  The webinar, titled  See The Light: The National Synchrotron Light Source and Other Tools of Discovery, will explore how the private sector research community can access and leverage advanced research facilities, such as synchrotron light sources and nanoscience centers across the country, that are funded by DOE’s Office of Science. These facilities are maintained and operated as shared resources for the scientific community and staffed by experts to assist users. 

The webinar will be in the format of a panel discussion moderated by Martin Schoonen, Associate Laboratory Director, Brookhaven National Laboratory.  Panelists are: Priscilla Antunez, Assistant Director for Strategic Partnerships at the Center for Functional Nanomaterials, Brookhaven National Laboratory; Dennis Mills, Deputy Associate Laboratory Director for Photon Sciences, Argonne National Laboratory; and Simon Bare, Senior Distinguished Scientist, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.
