Activate is the event of our year, every year—it’s when our fellows get to shine and show the power of their innovations. This year’s event made Cyclotron Road co-founder and managing director Sebastien Lounis more optimistic than ever about our program and its future.
Innovators from both cohorts and the entire Cyclotron Road team participated in an offsite retreat in early May. We hold these events at least twice a year to build community and put our minds in a more creative strategic space. This retreat was particularly special because it was the first real opportunity for innovators from both our first and second cohort to get to know each other on a deeper level, share lessons learned, and enjoy some fun competition.
The application for our second cohort is now open. We’re looking for the best, brightest, most driven energy innovators to join our second cohort. Visit cyclotronroad.org/apply to learn more.
Starting this Wednesday, our first cohort will begin a seminar series to introduce the scope of their projects to the Berkeley Lab community. Project leads will discuss the motivation for their work, give an overview of the technical innovations and challenges involved, and lay out their long-term technology goals. Seminars will be held in the area of the lab most closely related to each project and where the Cyclotron Road project leads will be actively collaborating with fellow Berkeley Lab scientists.
We hope to see you there!
