Energy and Global Security Research Divisions

As home to the research from which Argonne was first conceived, nuclear energy research, EGS encompasses a diverse team of scientists, engineers and technical support staff, all of whom are committed to developing and delivering innovative solutions to address our most pressing energy concerns. Most of the research done in the EGS directorate focuses on applying the knowledge gained through Argonne’s basic, fundamental scientific research to specific energy and security challenges. In that sense, EGS bridges the gap between discovery science and applied research with the following research capabilities.
