Science Accelerator is a gateway to science, including R&D results, project descriptions, accomplishments, DOE and Lab patents and more

Resources made available by the Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI), U.S. Department of Energy. Science Accelerator was developed and is made available by OSTI as a free public service.

When entering into collaborations, DOE follows five principles:

  1. directly support Departmental missions,
  2. have the potential to provide economic and other benefits to the nation,
  3. be formed in a fair and open manner,
  4. use best business practices,
  5. obtain measurable results.
