$5M Foundation Gift to Help Support US-China Energy Center at Berkeley Lab
In 2015, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and UC Berkeley announced a partnership with Tsinghua University in Beijing. They formed the Berkeley Tsinghua Joint Research Center on Energy and Climate Change, a center helping to develop scientifically based clean energy solutions and the next generation of leaders to champion those solutions.
Today, that effort received welcome support from Jim and Marilyn Simons in the amount of a $5 million donation.
