ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — To say that the technology and products that Sandia National Laboratories researchers have helped imagine, innovate and industrialize have had a massive impact on the country would be an understatement.

Two studies commissioned by Sandia and the National Nuclear Security Administration show Sandia’s work has had a staggering $140 billion economic impact since the year 2000.

Members of the media are invited to attend as Deputy Labs Director and Chief Operating Officer David Gibson, Senior Manager of Business Development Mary Monson, and others discuss the impact, its contributing factors, and how Sandia continues collaboration with businesses to move labs-developed technology to market.

The speakers will also highlight some of the successful business partnerships that have been cultivated over the decades.
