Through an annual call, teams of innovators focused on energy and science technologies are selected to join Chain Reaction Innovations (CRI) for two years. For Cohort 4, a record-breaking 156 applications were submitted and 35 semifinalists presented their ideas in January. Now the finalists will present at Argonne on February 18. Winners of the Finals Pitch Competition will become program participants and will receive financial and technical support needed to mature technologies to the proof-of-concept level. CRI’s Cohort 4 will be embedded at Argonne National Laboratory from June 2020 through June 2022.
