The semi-finals for the first cohort of Argonne’s new technology incubator, Chain Reaction Innovations (CRI), will take place September 13. Between 15 and 20 innovators from across the country will give a 10-minute presentation followed by a Q&A from judges.
Argonne employees are invited to watch the judging in building 241, room D172 to learn about future opportunities to collaborate with the innovators.
Technology pitches are grouped into the following time slots:
- 8:20 a.m. to 10 a.m.: Nanotechnology
- 10:30 a.m. to 12:10 p.m.: Energy Storage and Monitoring
- 12:50 p.m. to 2:10 p.m.: Manufacturing and Process/Internal Combustion Engines
- 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.: Nuclear Energy/Recycling and Renewable Energy
Innovators will present the technical merits and market potential on their ideas for new technologies that further products related to energy efficiency and sustainability or advanced manufacturing. The CRI program will accept four to six innovators into its first program, starting in late October.
