Funding announced for Argonne National Lab in Lemont

LEMONT – Argonne National Lab in Lemont is one of three national laboratories that will receive nearly $1.2 million to advance collaborative research and development focused on improving manufacturing processes to make American businesses more competitive, according to a news release from U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski, D-Western Springs.

The funds are part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Technologist in Residence Program, which is designed to streamline engagement and increase collaborative research and development between national laboratories and private-sector companies, according to the news release. The program partners a senior technologist from a national laboratory with an industry professional from a clean energy manufacturing company.

The TIR program increases industry engagement by capitalizing on the Department of Energy’s 17 national laboratories’ rich history of industry partnerships and commercial impact, and helps to bridge the gap between the private sector and the national laboratories.
