Abstract


The Department of Energy (DOE) National Laboratory System today is the largest research system of its kind in the world. After starting with a brief overview of the 17 laboratories and the wide array of science and engineering research performed by these labs, Vivian will present two programs within the Laboratory system that feed innovation and next generations research. The Big Ideas Summits have brought together teams from across the Laboratories to present ideas for future large scale programs. The Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) programs seed the science and engineering of the future.
