The attached policy to "Encourage Joint Research Collaboration between the University of California Campus and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the Los Alamos National Scientific Laboratory" is effective immediately.
The policy was developed through consultation with you and with the Academic Senate, and it is our joint expectation that availability of seed money will stimulate valuable, long-term research collaboration.

Policy to Encourage Joint Research Collaboration between the
California Campuses and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the
Los Alamos National Scientific Laboratory, DOE Laboratories Operated by the University.
The University of California is committed to increasing interactions between its campuses and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the Los Alamos National Scientific Laboratory, Department of Energy Laboratories operated by the University. In 1981 the Scientific and Academic Advisory Committee, specifically appointed to assist the University in its management responsibilities at the DOE Laboratories, recommended several methods by which the campuses and the Laboratories could engage in mutually beneficial cooperative efforts. At least one of these methods would formalize collaborations between the campuses and the Laboratories through cooperative research arrangements.
In furtherance of this general objective the University's Systemwide Administration has established a fund of seed money to encourage initiation of long-term collaborative research programs. This fund will be managed in the following way:
