Our Vision and Mission

Fermilab's Accelerator Division operates, maintains, and improves the laboratory's accelerator complex, beam lines and beam targets.

Our vision is to build and operate megawatt particle beams that will enable the science goals outlined in the 2014 Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel (P5) report.

Our mission is to drive scientific discovery by:

  • delivering particle beams for scientific research;
  • conducting accelerator physics research;
  • designing and building accelerators to extend the scientific reach of existing facilities.
