Various activities were held Friday at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as part of its 60th anniversary celebration.
At each activity, LLNL Director Parney Albright praised the lab’s workforce, as he talked about the lab's history, accomplishments and the future.
“There are two common elements: an absolutely outstanding and dedicated workforce, and our ability to take that workforce and leverage cutting-edge, state-of-the-art science in the service of the nation,” Albright said. “Our country is absolutely better off, safer and more secure because of the work that this laboratory has done over the last 60 years.”
Albright said, “We are really celebrating is not just the past 60 years, but the future of this Laboratory."
Science & Technology Day highlighted LLNL's record of innovation with featured speakers and panel discussions and a special awards ceremony. Albright gave out the Director's Awards to four team efforts as part of the Science & Technology Day activities. In addition, 15 former LLNL scientists and engineers were inducted into the Livermore's new Entrepreneurs' Hall of Fame.
