Event Details

The NIA and UC Berkeley are partnering with Third Way and a collection of leading companies, laboratories, and universities for this summer's two-week program from August 1-12, 2016. Twenty five students will be trained in entrepreneurship and nuclear-specific concerns beyond standard university education and will put that training to use through team design projects. The bootcamp will feature speakers from successful startups both within and outside nuclear energy, and mentors from across the country will be available for the teams.
