In 2016, Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz launched a program to develop the next generation of leaders in science and energy, national security, and environmental management. OSELP (formerly the Energy Sciences Leadership Group) was developed to introduce the next generation of DOE leaders to the breadth and depth of the National Laboratory system, expose them to the challenges and complexities of managing this system, and equip them with the knowledge, experiences and professional networks needed to succeed as DOE leaders. The National Laboratory Directors' Council now stewards OSELP, with Mr. Kevin Doran serving as the OSELP Director.
OSELP is a program of the National Laboratory Directors’ Council, which comprises the leadership of the U.S. Department of Energy’s 17 National Laboratories.
The Department of Energy’s 17 National Laboratories are powerhouses of science and technology whose researchers tackle some of the world’s toughest challenges. The Laboratories support scientists and engineers from academia, government, and industry with access to specialized equipment, world-class research facilities, and skilled technical staff. Together, they are working to solve some of the world’s greatest scientific challenges.
