The Nuclear Science and Security Consortium and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are organizing a day-long workshop at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to give scholars from the DNN R&D Consortia the opportunity to learn about U.S. national and nuclear security objectives in reducing global nuclear security threats. This day-long workshop will provide exposure to the DNN R&D mission and the role of LLNL in nuclear threat reduction. Scholars will have the opportunity to participate in hands-on experimental modules to gain valuable skills in R&D relevant for nuclear security and nonproliferation. This opportunity is open to scholars from all DNN R&D consortia (i.e., NSSC, MTV, and ETI). 

If you’re interested in participating, please submit the required application form. Applications are due by January 30, 2023.
