ORNL groundbreaking celebrates landmark partnership

OAK RIDGE, Tenn., Aug. 22, 2002-A groundbreaking ceremony held today at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory marks a first-of-its-kind partnership among ORNL, the state of Tennessee and the University of Tennessee.

Construction of the new facility to house the Joint Institute for Computational Sciences and the Oak Ridge Center for Advanced Studies occurs as part of a landmark project fusing the resources of DOE's largest multipurpose laboratory and the state's flagship university. Located inside the ORNL complex, the $10 million JICS/ORCAS facility is being funded by the state of Tennessee and will be managed jointly by UT and the laboratory.

"We at ORNL are extremely grateful to Don Sundquist and the Tennessee Legislature for their vision in funding this facility," said ORNL Director Bill Madia. "We look forward to collaborating with Dr. John Shumaker and the University of Tennessee to strengthen the research programs at both institutions."

Gov. Sundquist shares Madia's enthusiasm. "Many of us in Nashville were excited by the opportunity to help the University of Tennessee develop such a close and valuable partnership with Oak Ridge National Laboratory," Sundquist said. "Our flagship university now has access to equipment, talent and research facilities that we otherwise could never hope to have. This is an investment that will pay dividends for years to come at both UT and ORNL."

The new 52,000-square-foot facility will house two important programs: one to promote the use of high-performance computer resources in Tennessee, and another to establish a 21st century "think tank" for exploring major science and technology issues.

The University of Tennessee established the Joint Institute for Computational Sciences in 1991 to encourage and facilitate the effective use of high-performance computing resources in the state. The relationship with ORNL expanded when UT joined Battelle in April 2000 to manage the l
