Bredesen reiterates Oak Ridge-UT plan during AC visit

Abstract:
Gov. Phil Bredesen has announced a proposal to establish "a new, world-class graduate energy sciences and engineering program" at the University of Tennessee and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

The proposal is expected to make Oak Ridge more of an extension of the university campus, creating as many as 200 new UT faculty appointments among ORNL researchers and also opening "the doors of the lab to as many as 400 new graduate students." Officials plan to recruit graduate students from around the world.

State and UT officials hope to double the UT-Knoxville research fund from about $200 million to $400 million during the next few years and also bump UT into the list of top 25 public research institutions.

Among other things, the proposal, which will be brought to the state Legislature, could help boost economic development in fields like supercomputing and nanotechnology, the governor said.
