Department of Energy selects LLNL to lead development of manufacturing training program for energy entrepreneurs

3421927823_2f030d031d_z.jpg

The Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy (EERE) has tapped Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) to lead development of the training program for the new Build4Scale Manufacturing Training for Cleantech Entrepreneurs (Build4Scale) initiative, funding $1 million over the next 10 months. The program will teach entrepreneurs and engineers the tools they need to scale up production, and will be offered nationally through startup incubators, Manufacturing Extension Partnerships (MEPs), universities, community colleges, or DOE national laboratories.

Identifying Children and Saving Lives One Thumbprint at a Time

MSU Prof. Anil Jain and his team of biometrics researchers demonstrated in a first-of-its-kind study that digital scans of a young child's fingerprints can be correctly identified one year later. A child could be identified by a simple fingerprint scan at each medical visit, allowing them to get proper medical care such as life-saving vaccinations or food supplements.
