Department of Energy’s Office of Technology Transitions providing funding for researchers to support COVID-19 projects

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Technology Transitions (OTT) has announced a COVID-19 Technical Assistance Program (CTAP) that provides funding for national laboratory researchers to assist U.S. entities on COVID-19 projects.

The DOE National Laboratories have unique capabilities, facilities and tools, enabling them to provide technical services, analysis, testing, and consulting to external parties.

Eligibility is limited to projects providing COVID-19-related technical assistance to U.S. entities, defined as entities that are not subject to foreign majority control.

Parties interested in applying for CTAP funding should contact partners@​anl.​gov.

CTAP funding is for technical assistance of limited duration/scope (projects up to 40 full-time-employee hours are considered appropriate). Projects exceeding that threshold will require justification.

CTAP-funded projects are not meant to be research-and-development intensive, nor are they intended to generate intellectual property.

Argonne National Laboratory seeks solutions to pressing national problems in science and technology. The nation’s first national laboratory, Argonne conducts leading-edge basic and applied scientific research in virtually every scientific discipline. Argonne researchers work closely with researchers from hundreds of companies, universities, and federal, state and municipal agencies to help them solve their specific problems, advance America’s scientific leadership and prepare the nation for a better future. With employees from more than 60 nations, Argonne is managed by UChicago Argonne, LLC for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science is the single largest supporter of basic research in the physical sciences in the United States and is working to address some of the most pressing challenges of our time. For more information, visit https://​ener​gy​.gov/​s​c​ience.
