Partnership Opportunities

Featured programs

We are seeking partners for all of the following featured programs. This list may not be all-inclusive. Contact us with further inquiries.

Ongoing programs

In the coming years, our energy portfolio will become more and more diversified. Advanced Systems for Power from Integrated Renewable Energy (ASPIRE) is an LVOC public-private partnership focused solely on integrating disparate renewable energy sources to provide secure, sustainable, and affordable power solutions. ASPIRE is devoted to:

  • Accelerating the development and deployment of integrated renewable energy technologies
  • Increasing energy security beyond its current state
  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions
  • Advising policy makers and technology investors through sound research and demonstration

We are actively seeking partners for ASPIRE and other bioscience initiatives. Contact us to join in.

An important area of growth at LVOC is the Research, Engineering, and Applications Center for Hydrogen (REACH), a public-private partnership focused on accelerating the deployment of hydrogen-based technologies. REACH is focused on:

  • Removing technical barriers to growth and deployment of hydrogen technologies
  • Enhancing the availability of fueling infrastructure
  • Aggressively deploying new hydrogen technologies
  • Amplifying public acceptance and enthusiasm

We are actively seeking partners in academia and industry for REACH and other energy-related work. Contact us to join in.

Emerging programs

An emerging program at Sandia is the Cybersecurity Technologies Research Laboratory (CTRL), which promotes stronger relationships between industry, academia, and the laboratories in the research and development of cybersecurity technology, practices, and policy. The CTRL is interested in:

  • Developing the science and computing foundation necessary for robust cyber security R&D
  • Developing full knowledge of technical threat concerns
  • Developing, testing, and implementing cyber security approaches in real-world situations
  • Developing the credibility of cyber security as a necessary field of study, essential to the security and stability of the United States and the world
  • Developing political and social awareness of the real, imminent threat posed by cyber exploits

Another emerging LVOC program, the National Neutrino Detection Center (NDC), fosters collaboration in cutting-edge neutrino, gamma-ray, and neutron detector research and development, addressing immediate needs in global nuclear security. The NDC is interested in:

  • Developing advanced, cooperative nonproliferation technology
  • Engaging in cutting-edge neutrino and dark matter science experiments
  • Increasing global ability to detect and interdict illicit nuclear materials

We are actively seeking partners for NDC and other detection technology programs. Contact us to join in.
