Berkeley to lead nuclear security consortium

UC Berkeley is leading a new $25 million nuclear security and science consortium funded by the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA). The consortium members include eight universities and five national laboratories. The new consortium builds on the work of Berkeley’s first $25 million NNSA consortium, funded in 2011. The late nuclear chemist Heino Nitsche (see p. 32) was one of the five faculty leads on the first project.
