National Lab Partners

National Laboratories, under the U.S. Department of Energy, are leaders in innovation and conduct scientific research and development across a broad spectrum of science and technology. Our partnerships with national labs are long-term and allow for laboratory employees to be embedded at LAS. 

Since 2015, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has been an active collaborator and partner with LAS. With a strong focus on leveraging subject matter expertise across technical domains, PNNL’s additional integration with the LAS research mission supports a variety of opportunities for cross-organizational staff engagements. Seminar series talks, immersive workshops, and project-specific collaborations continue to support the growth of this unique partnership with the Department of Energy.
