DOE Research in Accelerator Stewardship - preapplication
Mandatory preapplication due March 15, 2022.

The central goals of Accelerator Stewardship are to: • Engage the expertise and facilities of the existing U.S. accelerator R&D ecosystem in a manner that enhances the ability of research sponsors to support innovative concepts; • Enhance the accelerator technology capabilities of U.S. industry; • Facilitate access to the accelerator R&D capabilities at the SC National Laboratories • Drive a limited number of specific accelerator applications towards practical, testable prototypes in a five to seven year timeframe; • Foster collaboration between developers of accelerator technology and experts who apply accelerator technology; and • Provide the basic R&D foundation necessary for sustained innovation across a broad range of accelerator applications.

The following are four topic areas active in Track 1 of this FOA:
1. Particle Therapy Beam Delivery Improvements.
2. Ultrafast Laser Technology Program.
3. High Power Electron Accelerator Technology for Industrial Applications.
4. Compact Accelerator Technologies for Security and Medicine.
Applications submitted under Track 1 should address specific research goals in only one of these topical areas
