Proposals are now being accepted (Due September 15th, 2020) for the FY21 Collaborative Research with Los Alamos National Laboratory. The Texas A&M University System (TAMUS) National Laboratories Office (NLO) has developed a multi-element program to help TAMUS researchers:
- Develop collaborative ties with researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL).
- Obtain funding for TAMUS-LANL collaborative research projects.
- Formalize long-term relationships where appropriate, such as through joint appointments.
The goal of this program is to increase the number and depth of research collaborations that benefit the TAMUS, LANL and the individuals involved. A key strategy toward that goal is to encourage and enable TAMUS researchers to spend time with LANL researchers and learn about LANL missions that are supported by research in their areas of interest. The time spent establishing relationships with LANL staff and learning about its missions and unsolved problems greatly increase the likelihood of long-term funded collaborations that benefit all parties.
