This event, Additive Manufacturing and Building the Future, will explore how entrepreneurs, early and growth-stage startups, major companies, and universities can access and leverage advanced research facilities and capabilities at Ames Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). These facilities are maintained and operated as shared resources for the scientific community and staffed by experts to assist users.
Watch the panel discussion moderated by Blake Marshall, Technology Manager for DOE’s Advanced Manufacturing Office. Panelists include: Emma White, Associate Scientist at Ames Laboratory, Chris Spadaccini, Director, Center for Engineered Materials and Manufacturing at LLNL, and Lonnie Love, Group Leader of ORNL's Manufacturing Systems Research Group at ORNL.
Sandia Labs Entrepreneurial Equity Forum
August 11-12, 2020
Join Sandia National Laboratories for a two-day event to explore pathways for increasing the participation of women and Native American entrepreneurs in the New Mexico economy, and the role the National Labs and city, tribal, and state actors could play to advance this outcome. This event was made possible through OTT's Practices to Accelerate Commercialization of Technologies (PACT) Lab Call in 2019.
The event features a combination of panel discussions and participatory sessions that reflect on practical steps we can take to advance an inclusive and resilient economy in New Mexico.
Sessions build on one another, and the Entrepreneurial Journeys on Day 1 are an integral part to inform action items and next steps. Day 2 continues with gender and indigenous perspectives on entrepreneurship in New Mexico, and we conclude the day with a facilitated plenary discussion about concrete next steps that private and public organizations and individuals can take to advance an inclusive and resilient economy in the State.
