Oak Ridge National Laboratory

The Georgia Institute of Technology is one of the core partner universities associated with Oak Ridge National Laboratory. This relationship allows Georgia Tech faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and students opportunities to take advantage of the ORNL facilities and collaborate with researchers. The two institutions are leaders for R&D expenditures in the U.S. Southeast with multiple research and education partnerships.

Limited Submissions

Limited submission competitions are funding opportunities for which the sponsor limits the number of applications an institution can submit. Extra submissions may result in the rejection of all submissions from the institution. Therefore, these opportunities often require an internal selection process to determine which proposal teams can move forward with an application.  

The Office of the Executive Vice President for Research (EVPR) facilitates limited submissions for Georgia Tech.

National Renewable Energy Laboratory

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is a Department of Energy (DOE) federally funded research and development center that advances the science and engineering of energy efficiency, sustainable transportation, and renewable power technologies and provides the knowledge to integrate and optimize energy systems.

NREL transforms energy through research, development, commercialization, and deployment of renewable energy and energy efficiencies technologies.
