Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear

The GAIN University Directory features a sample of universities engaged in the development of advanced nuclear technologies and should not be considered a comprehensive list of universities. All universities have participated on a voluntary basis and are responsible for the information provided. Inclusion of a university does not indicate endoresement by GAIN.

GAIN Mission Statement:

The mission of the Department of Energy Office of Nuclear Energy (DOE-NE) is to advance nuclear power as a resource capable of meeting the nation's energy, environmental and national security needs by resolving technical, cost, safety, proliferation resistance, and security barriers through research, development and demonstration ﴾RD&D﴿.  READ MORE

​The Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN) announced today that two nuclear companies will be provided GAIN Nuclear Energy (NE) Vouchers to accelerate the innovation and application of advanced nuclear technologies. NE vouchers provide advanced nuclear technology innovators with access to the extensive nuclear research capabilities and expertise available across the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratory complex. This is the fourth set of awards in FY 2019.  READ MORE


WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced funding selectees for multiple domestic advanced nuclear technology projects. Three projects in three states will receive varying amounts for a total of approximately $15 million in funding. The projects are cost-shared and will allow industry-led teams, including participants from federal agencies, public and private laboratories, institutions of higher education, and other domestic entities, to advance the state of U.S. commercial nuclear capability. READ MORE


The Fiscal Year 2020 Technology Commercialization Fund (TCF) funding opportunity announcement has been released and is available here. TCF leverages research and development funding in the applied energy programs to mature promising energy technologies with high impact potential. TCF works to expand the commercial impact of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) portfolio of research, development, demonstration, and deployment activities. National laboratory-led proposals cover two topic areas: Topic Area 1: Projects for which additional technology maturation is needed to attract a private partner. Topic Area 2: Cooperative development projects between a lab and industry partner(s), designed to bolster the commercial application of a lab developed technology.
