The DOE Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) recently launched OSTI.GOV

The DOE Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) recently launched OSTI.GOV, a new search tool for DOE's R&D results and OSTI’s organizational hub. The new site improves access to the unclassified results from DOE’s $12 billion annual R&D investment for our DOE researchers and the public.

The search tool feature of OSTI.GOV, formerly called SciTech Connect, makes available over 70 years of research results from DOE and its predecessor agencies, comprising nearly 3 million records including journal articles/accepted manuscripts and related metadata, technical reports, scientific research datasets and collections, software, patents, conference papers, books, theses, and multimedia.

For more information and to ensure your research is included with OSTI.GOV, contact Chris Kowalczyk (208-526-9047).

Gateway for Accelerated Inovation in Nuclear (GAIN) Announces: 

Advanced Nuclear Technology Development Voucher Opportunity

December 13, 2017

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho – The Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN) today announced the availability of fiscal year 2018 funds for vouchers to assist applicants developing advanced nuclear energy technologies who are seeking access to the world-class expertise and capabilities available across the U.S. Department of Energy's national laboratory complex. The vouchers are provided by the DOE's Office of Nuclear Energy to support nuclear energy innovation.

U.S. Industry Opportunities for Advance Nuclear Technology Funding Opportunity (FOA)

December 7,2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry released a funding opportunity announcement (FOA) to support development of advanced nuclear energy technology. The Department of Energy (DOE) is soliciting proposals for cost-shared projects to develop innovative, industry-driven reactor designs and accompanying technologies with high potential to advance nuclear power in the United States.

“Targeted early-stage investment in advanced nuclear technology will support a strong domestic industry now and into the future,” said Secretary Perry. “This funding opportunity is an important step to ensure our nation continues to benefit from this clean, resilient source of electricity.”

DOE expects to make up to $30 million or more available in FY 2018 awards, subject to the availability of funding. The FOA will be open for a five-year period accepting applications on a year-round basis, with a quarterly selection process. Additional funding will be available in future years, as allocated by Congress.

Through this competition, DOE encourages U.S. companies to partner with other U.S. federal agencies, public and private laboratories, institutions of higher education, and other domestic entities to share expertise needed to successfully develop these innovative technologies.

This FOA is available at under reference number DE-FOA-0001817. Initial applications are due January 31, 2018.

DOE will conduct a webinar on January 9, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. EST for more information on this funding opportunity. You can register for the webinar here. A Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) document is also available at

The 2018 NE Voucher Program was announced as part of the new  Advanced Nuclear Technology FOA. For more information please go to FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES.

"If you really care about this environment that we live in 
-- and I think the vast majority of the people in the country 
and the world do -- then you need to be a supporter of this 
amazingly clean, resilient, safe, reliable source of energy," 
Perry said during a news conference.
