Town Hall Meeting of BESAC Subcommittee on International Benchmarking Study

A subcommittee of the DOE Basic Energy Science Advisory Committee (BESAC) is conducting an international benchmark study with the goals: i) to identify key areas of its mission-relevant research and facility capabilities in which U.S. leadership is most threatened; ii) to advise on modifications to existing trade-offs or new ways to leverage scarce resources; iii) to identify incentives that will retain and attract scientific talent. The purpose of this town hall meeting is to share the preliminary findings, and to seek community input.
