The development of strategic think-pieces comprise an important element of the Oppenheimer program. Fellows work in teams throughout their fellowship to research and develop think-pieces that tackle major organizational, policy, scientific, other challenges within DOE’s mission areas. Developing these think-pieces is an involved and iterative process that engages Lab leadership, NLDC subcommittees, mentors, and external experts. The think-piece exercise challenges the Fellows to move beyond their professional comfort zones to develop innovative perspectives and solutions that can improve the DOE and National Lab enterprise. Think-pieces are presented to the NLDC in a capstone event at the end of the Cohort's fellowship period.

Though site visits to National Labs, DOE, and strategic partners, OSELP immerses its Fellows in the singular breadth, diversity, and complexity of the National Labs, DOE, and their partners.
