CWRU, National Lab Expand Collaboration

The leaders of Case Western Reserve University and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) signed an agreement in August to accelerate their collaborative efforts. The two will exchange and share science and technology ideas; enable student opportunities and internships; and pursue research activities in areas of joint interest and benefit.

“This agreement provides an important framework as we partner to advance some of today’s most transformative science and technology,” said LLNL Director Kim Budil. The Livermore Lab is one of 17 laboratories around the country operating under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Energy.

Since 2019, the university and the LLNL have worked together in several areas and, in the last two years, the lab has awarded more than $3 million in research grants to CWRU faculty in areas including energy, materials science and polymer processing.
