Around the World Tours
These annual tours allow faculty, students, and researchers the opportunity to visit CAES consortium locations, tour facilities, and make connections with other consortium members.
These groups catalyze a community of researchers in each strategic focus area (Nuclear Energy; Energy-Water Nexus; Cybersecurity; Advanced Manufacturing; Innovative Energy Systems; Energy Policy; and Computing, Data, and Visualization), leading to new collaborations, external funding opportunities, and ultimate impact in research, education, and innovation for the CAES community. Note that working groups have access to funds to accelerate these outcomes. Email your CAES Associate Director to join a working group.
This annual training is designed to help participants learn practices that are proven to help develop new ideas, create winning proposals, and ensure research being conducted at the CAES entities has a tangible, positive impact in alignment with the innovation pillar outlined in the CAES Strategy.
CAES Collaboration Fund
The annual collaboration fund is designed to provide funding to selected proposals by Idaho National Laboratory researchers that would enhance collaborative relationships with CAES universities, in line with the CAES strategic plan. The CAES leadership team selects the winning proposals.
Codebreaker Seminar Series
This monthly seminar provides a forum for students and researchers to address their work, communicate opportunities and challenges to a receptive audience, and increase dialogue among CAES affiliates leading to further interdisciplinary collaborations and new ground-breaking research. Codebreaker is an engaging presentation and Q&A forum that covers a range of topics in energy science, engineering, business, and policy.
Proposal Writing Support
The CAES team provides assistance to researchers – from identifying calls for proposals, interpreting expectations, writing the proposal, to submission. Coordination with your home institution is also available.
CAES Technical Assistance Program (C-TAP)
C-TAP is a business portal that provides fast, innovative solutions to complex technical problems facing local and regional businesses. A key component is the engagement of students, who work closely with faculty and staff in the problem-solving process, gaining real-world work experience.
