SNAP Wins NASA Support For Dark Energy Mission

NASA has announced that it will support an advanced mission concept study for the SNAP experiment, proposed by Berkeley Lab and the Space Sciences Laboratory at UC Berkeley for NASA and DOE's Joint Dark Energy Mission (JDEM). "As one of three groups chosen by NASA for further development of the Joint Dark Energy Mission, we are pleased that NASA is interested in our approach to the problem with the SNAP concept," said Berkeley Lab Director Steven Chu. "DOE and NASA have provided funding to us in the past for our approach, and it is a very good sign that the two agencies are moving forward together on the project." Full story.

Reminder on Licensing
Income Distribution

It continues to be the policy of Berkeley Lab that employees (and others who assign to UC their rights to intellectual property through Berkeley Lab) receive a share of net licensing income. Go here to read the entire policy.

Reminder on Contacts With
State and Federal Officials

Employees may not act or give the appearance of acting on behalf of the Laboratory or the University when communicating with state or federal officials unless they are authorized to do so. To act or give the appearance of acting on behalf of the Laboratory or the University in such instances without authorization may be construed as a conflict of interest. The complete text of the Laboratory's lobbying policy, as well as guidance on appropriate contact with state and federal officials, may be found in Regulations and Procedures Manual 2.23(H), located here.
