Message from Horst Simon
Berkeley Lab, with its incredible talent, state-of-the art facilities, and extensive resources and network, is a great place to pursue our mission of developing science and technology solutions for the world. Every day, I see our people doing so, and I enjoy recognizing and honoring their efforts. Below you can read about the Director’s Awards, which is one way you too can recognize your colleagues.
You will also read stories about initiatives that work to provide opportunity, including DOE’s first Deputy Director for Energy Justice Shalanda Baker’s vision to provide energy justice to disadvantaged communities and the Lab’s hosting of emerging women STEM leaders from the Middle East, Africa, and Asia through the TechWomen leadership development program.
I also want to highlight our Earth Month activities and the I-Corps innovation training course. These activities provide opportunities for you to engage, to share, and to learn.
With lots of productive activity throughout the Lab this spring, I thank you all for your continued diligence and innovative spirit, creating opportunities for scientific discovery, and supporting this discovery every day.
Deputy Laboratory Director for Research
Chief Research Officer
