and the DOE has already committed $250,000 to the city of Albuquerque to help fund basic infrastructure construction for the park.
What distinguishes Sandia is its dedication to science with the end in mind, a process essential for the laboratory to meet its national security responsibilities. These responsibilities require performance backed by broad-based scientific knowledge, agility, and expertise. To achieve this, Sandia brings together the best qualified scientists and engineers to meet the challenges at hand. More and more, this means working with partners in industry, academia, and other federal laboratories. The establishment of the Sandia Science and Technology Park is an important step in creating such partnerships.
