For Phase One submissions it is important for teams that may be working with a National Laboratory to NOT state which laboratories they are currently partnering with or plan to partner with in their Technical Narrative. It is acceptable to state in your Technical Narrative that you are working with a national laboratory, however, please do NOT specify which one. 

Example of permitted language:  “ Our team is working with a national laboratory to…” 

Please note that we DO want to know which lab your team plans to work with on your voucher slide, but this will only be used if you are a Phase One winner. However, there should not be any other mention of current partnerships with specific labs or of proposed future partnerships in the Technical Narrative or anywhere else in the submission package. If you have already submitted an application, you can edit this submission up until the deadline on January 13, 2023. Please make edits accordingly and please connect directly at if you have questions. Thank you!
