Los Alamos Lab – Technology Day at LARP
In 1943, Los Alamos Laboratory was founded with a single and urgent purpose: build an atomic bomb. This goal required extraordinary innovation driven by interdisciplinary scientific discovery and creative engineering. It was the beginning of a new way of approaching national security: not as a single response to a single problem, but as a collaborative effort across disciplines to anticipate threats and develop technologies to counter them. Today, this same spirit of innovation is the defining character of the Laboratory. Their mission is to provide solutions to the toughest national security challenges the nation faces. These challenges cannot be overcome without the innovative contributions of the labs industry partners. FBC will once again host the Annual Technology Expo. Its a great opportunity for companies to meet with lab employees to discuss the challenges they are facing and provide solutions to help them achieve their mission. Every effort will be made to invite the personnel from all of the offices/buildings on the LANL campus with a concentrated focus on the key decision makers from each group. This is an excellent opportunity to communicate directly with many of the Laboratorys scientists, engineers and programming staff members that may otherwise be inaccessible at this secure facility. Past events have seen 150-200 laboratory personnel attend. About LANL: http://www.lanl.gov/index.php Los Alamos National Laboratory is a premier national security research institution, delivering scientific and engineering solutions for the nations most crucial and complex problems. Their primary responsibility is ensuring the safety, security and reliability of the nations nuclear deterrent. The mission at LANL emphasizes worker safety, effective operational safeguards & security, and environmental stewardship, while outstanding science remains the foundation of the Laboratory. In addition to supporting the Labs core national security mission, LANLs work advances bioscience, chemistry, computer science, earth and environmental sciences, materials science, and physics.
