The IMASC is capitalizing on existing DOE national resources, including LLNL, LBNL, and BNL in addition to building new capabilities at these national facilities. In addition, it has state of the art resources and facilities in each of the four universities and a Max Planck Society Institute. It has a central ‘hub’ with nerve center for management and leverages the facilities available at the Rowland Institute for Science (Harvard) as a venue for driving scientific and technical innovation.
