Cyclotron Road is a fellowship program based in Berkeley, CA. As Cyclotron Road Fellows, leading technology innovators are embedded at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for two years while they advance a project with the potential for global impact. Since 2015, Cyclotron Road has awarded more than $10 million directly to 28 fellows, who have gone on to generate more than $45 million in early-stage funding to support their projects.
Cyclotron Road is managed as a partnership between Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Activation Energy, an independent not-for-profit organization. This partnership provides a platform for deep engagement with both public and private sector partners, allowing Cyclotron Road to more effectively address the most critical barriers facing our innovators as they move their ideas from concept to product. Cyclotron Road is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, DARPA, the California Energy Commission, and a number of the world's most influential corporations and philanthropies.
