Are you an innovator interested in developing your clean energy or climate tech startup? Applications are now open for the Chain Reaction Innovations (CRI) entrepreneurship program, hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory (ANL).

CRI is a two-year fellowship program that propels energy entrepreneurs by helping them leverage ANL’s resources to advance their early-stage technology to market. The goal of CRI is to help shorten the development timeline of hardtech and create a ‘chain reaction’ that impacts clean energy job growth while addressing the climate emergency.

Applications are being accepted now through November 30, 2022. Four to six individuals or teams will be selected to join and will receive salary, benefits, travel expenses, and support for technical work at ANL. Work will begin in summer 2023.

To learn more about applying,  attend the upcoming informational webinar on November 28, 2022 from 4-5 p.m. ET. Learn more here about how to turn your early-stage clean technology into a viable business.

Chain Reaction Innovations is part of the Lab-Embedded Entrepreneurship Program supported by DOE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable EnergyDOE’s Office of Science Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) program; and by Argonne National Laboratory
