CollaborativeUniversity Center for Advanced Energy Studies This collaboration between INL and Idahos three public research universities has changed the perception of relationships between the federal government and state entities. CAES is now held up as a model across the DOE complex of how a federal-state partnership can leverage each members investments to benefit higher education research throughout the state. 38 Model Leveraging investments The CAES partners have proven that a national laboratory and competing public universities can collaborate to achieve results. Researchers from partner institutions work side-by-side to assemble strong innovative proposals that win funding from a variety of agencies and industries. The CAES model enables the pooling of resources and sharing of equipment which lets CAES researchers compete with much larger universities to win research dollars. In addition the university partners continue to build strong academic programs that are educating a new generation of scientists and engineers. Boise State University recently introduced a doctoral program in materials science and engineering. University of Idaho and Idaho State University continue to build enrollment in nuclear-related fields. And research opportunities at CAES are partly responsible for increasing INLs graduate student internships.
