• How can the program be structured to take advantage of the unique capabilities of U.S. universities and federal labs?

The committee plans to meet at least three more times in the summer and fall of 1996 to gather information, deliberate on the issues, and write reports. A future meeting will be dedicated to a workshop at which panel members will have an opportunity to obtain information from and to question a broad group of invited university, national laboratory, industry, DOE, and other federal agency staff on the issues articulated above. The panels will issue final reports in late 1996.
