The primary mission of Los Alamos National Laboratory is to develop and deploy the technology required to protect and preserve our national security. Increasingly, successful transition of technology from an idea to a practical solution to a government need requires participation by industry. Another important mission is to apply our technology to the economic benefit of the Nation, and meeting a commercial need absolutely requires participation by industry.
We recognize that protecting the intellectual property (patents and copyrighted software) that underlies our technology is essential to attract strong industry partners. In this way, intellectual property often helps to accomplish both our national security and economic benefit missions.
While our intellectual property signals areas that the Laboratory considers to be potentially transformative technologies in both government and commercial sectors, the innovation assets we make available to our industry partners include the ideas, knowledge, skills and experience of our people.
We invite you to learn more about our capabilities, and our intellectual property below.
