Opening doors for innovation and entrepreneurships opportunities is key for Sandia/California.

 As part of that commitment, Sandia/California hosted a delegation of municipal leaders from Luzhou, China, on Thursday, April 20. Luzhou, located in the Sichuan Province of China, is known as the wine city of China.

 “Partnering with the City of Livermore to provide opportunities to showcase the lab’s innovations is important to future technology transfer and small business partnerships,” says Stephanie Beasly (8539), who helped spearhead the visit. “The delegation visit is just another example of Sandia’s important role in Livermore and the Tri-Valley.”

 Mark Musculus (8362) who led a tour of Sandia’s Combustion Research Facility says highlighting the work done in the facility is crucial.

 “This work supports both US and international energy policy goals of enhancing energy security, protecting the environment, and promoting economic development,” Mark says.

 The visit to Livermore was led by Livermore Mayor John Marchand. In addition, the delegation visited Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, i-GATE innovation hub, and Concannon and Wente wineries.
