2017 NE Voucher Information

**NE Voucher Application Submissions Currently Under Review**


In support of nuclear energy innovation, DOE-NE vouchers provide funds to assist applicants seeking access to the world class expertise and capabilities available across the United States (U.S.) DOE complex. 

GAIN seeks to provide the nuclear industrial community with access to the technical, regulatory, and financial support necessary to move new or advanced nuclear technologies toward commercialization while ensuring the continued safe, reliable, and economic operation of the existing nuclear fleet. 

The goal of the NE Voucher program is to accelerate commercialization of innovative nuclear energy technologies. Request for Assistance Proposals for the FY2017 call have been submitted and are currently under review with an expected review completion in late May, 2017

The Nuclear Energy Infrastructure Database (NEID) provides a list and description of many nuclear energy R&D capabilities and can be accessed after an initial registration via the Nuclear User Facility website at this link: NSUF. (Please click on "infrastructure")

Nuclear Energy Voucher Documents

Cooperative Research and Development Agreements
CRADAs provide the administrative structure for GAIN partnerships.  A standard GAIN Nuclear Energy Voucher CRADA template is linked below as well as a non-IP CRADA template.

For voucher applicants who do not anticipate creation of intellectual property due to the nature of their proposed work, the non-IP CRADA may be applicable for work proposed to be performed at INL or ANL only at this time (pending DOE approval of the CRADA including consideration of the Statement of Work).  Note that in order for a non-IP CRADA to be suitable for use, the Statement of Work will need to clearly reflect that the work to be performed will not give rise to the creation of new intellectual property by the applicant or the laboratory.  It is anticipated that the vast majority of applicants will utilize the primary contracting mechanism, the Standard NE Voucher CRADA.
