New Challenges Require New Approaches

As a public-facing open innovation space and a portal to Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Livermore Valley Open Campus (LVOC) was created to drive mutually beneficial collaboration and scientific and technological discovery by leveraging scientific capabilities, renowned expertise, and unique facilities. Along with strengthening the Laboratory’s national security mission, LVOC supports LLNL by:

  1. Empowering multidisciplinary partnerships to advance science and innovation
  2. Creating spin in/spin out opportunities for users beyond the Laboratory
  3. Bolstering the U.S. economy by developing and refining new technologies
  4. Contributing to science education and strengthening local and scientific communities

LVOC’s campus is ideal for team science by providing spaces and facilities for researchers, technologists, and scientists to gather.

Working Together on New Innovations

Making sure our partners have access to the right resources ensures successful collaborations.
