Don't miss your chance to participate in this webinar, which will highlight the critical role of partnerships in support of nuclear physics research.

Representatives from the Department of Energy’s Office of Science for Nuclear Physics, Jefferson Lab, and Brookhaven National Laboratory will describe the range of world-class expertise, facilities, and resources available throughout the DOE National Laboratory Network, as well how advances in nuclear physics impact science and society.

Looking to the future, we will also discuss the rich scientific program planned for the newly approved Electron Ion Collider (EIC), as well as hear from academic researchers advancing science through partnerships with Argonne National Laboratory, Facility for Rare Isotope Beams, Jefferson Lab, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
