Collaborative Research

Strategic collaboration drives manufacturing innovation

Argonne National Laboratory is situated near dozens of the nation’s top engineering and research schools. Many of them actively collaborate with scientists and engineers at Argonne and in its manufacturing science and engineering initiative on research projects and to train the next generation that will develop and operate advanced manufacturing technologies.

Materials Science Division

Materials Science Division

The collaborative work done in Argonne’s Materials Science Division brings together scientists with world-class expertise who use the laboratory’s state-of-the-art facilities to gain a better understanding and appreciation of the small-scale phenomena that make materials behave the ways that they do.
