  • Alaska National Lab Day — Communicating for Collaborating

Over 200 people from the Department of Energy's national laboratory system and headquarters, the University of Alaska, elected offices, and Alaska's utilities and industries met in Fairbanks May 30-31.

UAF hosted the event in the new Engineering Learning and Innovation Facility. It included a laboratory open house and poster displays on West Ridge, and three local tours.

The program featured a series of plenary panel discussions on May 30 and six topically focused breakout sessions on May 31. A closeout session highlighted many new initiatives for working together to pursue energy technologies and applications relevant to Alaska, the U.S. and the world. Copies of the presentations and recordings of the May 30 discussions will be available via the program website.
