No firm schedule or funding identified yet.3) JLab will have the largest WBS element, a 2.5 GeV superconducting linac and maybe cryogenics and FEL physics (regardless of site).4) Virginia has potential to compete for this but it would require a major effort ($3M) over next 3 years to mount realistic challenge to LBNL. 5) We need: Strong regional political support, commitment to build significant user base at universities, donation of site, well-vetted system design</p><p>3 May 2011</p><p>3 May 2011</p></li><li><p>DOE BES Science Grand Challenges</p><p> Directing Matter and Energy; 5 Challenges for Science &amp; the Imagination</p><p>1.
