2012 LDRD Allocations Announced

2012 LDRD Allocations Announced

December 8, 2011

Director Alivisatos has announced the awards for the FY2012 Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) program. A total of about $19.0 million was allocated for 87 projects from a field of 196 proposals. Of these, 35 are new and 52 are continuation projects. A significant portion of the projects address the reduction of the impact of energy use at each stage of the carbon cycle, or advance the boundaries of ultrafast photon science in support of laboratory initiatives. Funded projects can be viewed here. The evaluations for the traditional Track 1 proposals used input from divisional and laboratory review committees. A much smaller number of proposals went through a Track 2 “Discovery” review process by reviewers outside the Lab and UC Berkeley. Out of 28 Track 2 proposals submitted, four continuation and four new projects were funded (noted with asterisk in list).
