In 2007, Fermi Research Alliance, LLC (FRA), a joint partnership of the University of Chicago and the Universities Research Association (URA), was selected to manage and operate Fermilab on behalf of the U.S. Department of Energy. From its founding in 1967, Fermilab has expanded humankind's understanding of matter, energy, space and time, driven the development of cutting-edge technologies from scientific research, and trained the next generation of scientists. At Fermilab, thousands of scientists from universities and laboratories around the world collaborate to transform science and society.
FRA combines the finest scientific leadership with best management practices to support innovation and discovery at Fermilab that serves the national interest. URA and UChicago bring to the operation of Fermilab a combined 100-plus years of successful management and oversight of DOE laboratories.
