Lab-Embedded Entrepreneurship Program



EERE created the Lab-Embedded Entrepreneurship Programs to provide an institutional home for innovative postdoctoral researchers to build their research into products and train to be entrepreneurs. The Lab-Embedded Entrepreneurship Programs are funded by EERE’s Advanced Manufacturing Office, and co-managed with EERE’s Technology-to-Market Program. The Lab-Embedded Entrepreneurship Programs take top entrepreneurial scientists and engineers and embed them within U.S. national laboratories to perform early-stage research and development (R&D) that may lead to the launch of energy or manufacturing businesses in the future. In addition to technological access and support, the program trains innovators to develop entrepreneurial acumen and skills, while introducing them to the ecosystem partners needed to facilitate commercial and investment opportunities. There are currently three programs: Cyclotron Road at Lawrence Berkeley National Labarotary in California; Chain Reaction Innovations at Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois; and Innovation Crossroads at Oak Ridge Laboratory in Tennessee.
