Southeast Region Research Initiative (SERRI)
SERRI is a groundbreaking program managed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to assist local, state and tribal leaders in developing the tools and methods required to anticipate and forestall terrorist events and to enhance disaster response.
Combining science and technology with validated operational approaches, SERRI will address regionally unique requirements and suggest regional solutions with potential national implications.
SERRI's regional approach capitalizes on the inherent power resident in the Southeast United States. The partnership of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the Y-12 National Security Complex and the Savannah River National Laboratory are all tightly linked to the full spectrum of regional and national research universities to provide a window into cutting-edge science and technology development unmatched by any other homeland security organization.
