The DOE Laboratory System

Together, the 17 DOE laboratories comprise a preeminent federal research system, providing the Nation with strategic scientific and technological capabilities. The laboratories:

  • Execute long-term government scientific and technological missions, often with complex security, safety, project management, or other operational challenges;
  • Develop unique, often multidisciplinary, scientific capabilities beyond the scope of academic and industrial institutions, to benefit the Nation’s researchers and national strategic priorities; and
  • Develop and sustain critical scientific and technical capabilities to which the government requires assured access.
