Access an unmatched network of resources and innovation leaders while developing your technology at a world-renown research hub.
The birthplace of the Activate Fellowship, our Berkeley, CA location is hosted by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Activate has supported Cyclotron Road in partnership with Berkeley Lab since 2016.
Active Fellows at Cyclotron Road spend two years embedded at this world-class, multiprogram national laboratory, supported by the U.S. Department of Energy. Fellows can work hand-in-hand with Berkeley Lab scientists and faculty—and access exceptional facilities and research tools. Berkeley Lab and its scientists have been recognized with 13 Nobel Prizes.
Located on 202 acres above the UC Berkeley campus, with spectacular views of the Bay and just a stone’s throw from San Francisco and Silicon Valley, Cyclotron Road sits at the center of an unmatched research and innovation ecosystem.
