DoE 2000

Materials MicroCharacterization Collaboratory

DoE 2000:
(March 1997)

The DoE 2000 program will provide tools that qualitatively improve the ability of the Department of Energy to accomplish its missions and set the standard for scientific R & D organizations in the 21st century. These tools will eliminate physical distance and organizational structure as limits to collaboration. They will lead to a system-wide culture change in sharing resources, and will engender superior ways of doing science, engineering, research collaboration and management. By enabling collective use of resources far in excess of those available in a single facility, significant cost savings will also be realized. More information can be found at the DoE 2000 Home Page
