Connecting great minds and big ideas

Coming together

The Livermore Valley Open Campus (LVOC)—an innovation hub based in eastern Alameda County, CA on the campuses of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories/CA – provides a unique opportunity for innovators and US companies to leverage the unmatched talent and resources within these premier research institutions.

In LVOC’s expanding vision of advanced scientific and engineering centers, researchers from private industry and academia are able to work alongside laboratory personnel to contribute to the next generation of big ideas. Ideas that will make tomorrow’s supercomputers possible and usher in carbon-free transportation. Ideas that will further streamline American manufacturing and expand the frontiers of medicine. And ideas that will help our nation’s economy continue to adapt and thrive.

Creating a wide open future

LVOC is already delivering on its promise. LVOC's High Performance Computing Innovation Center (HPCIC) at Livermore Laboratory, for example, has helped outside partners apply some of the world’s most powerful computing resources to solve their high impact real-world business problems. Further, decades of industry collaborations at the Combustion Research Facility (CRF) at Sandia, a legacy program folded into LVOC, has helped make combustion engines cleaner and more fuel efficient worldwide.

With partners who complement our expertise, innovation, and vision, LVOC creates solutions for the challenges we face today—and helps forge a more secure, prosperous, and stable tomorrow.
