What is M37?

M37 is a New Entrepreneurial R&D Program  
a home for top innovators to develop high-impact energy technologies.

Developing energy technologies isn't easy. It involves tough science, long validation cycles, and brutal economics. Creating options for our energy future depends on serious researchers -- ones with the skills and creativity to reinvent our physical world, and the drive to bring their technologies to market.

M37 provides a home for top impact-driven researchers to advance technologies until they can succeed beyond the research lab. Its purpose is to support critical technology development and identify the most suitable path, partners, and financing mechanisms for long-term impact. 

As part of M37's founding cohort, you will work side-by-side with other star innovators, each advancing his or her technology vision for a more sustainable world. You'll draw inspiration from one another: tearing down, rebuilding, and strengthening one another's ideas. With Berkeley Lab as your workspace, you will have the opportunity to collaborate with the world's best scientists in one of the world's most advanced research campuses. And you will gain access to a broad network of energy experts in technology, business, and policy from across the country and beyond.

The ecosystem for energy technology innovation is in peril. We need a new vehicle for impact-driven energy R&D. M37 was created to empower the best innovators and leverage our national research assets in the fierce pursuit of next-generation energy solutions.
