What's in a Name? Making the case for America's state-of-the-art facilities
State-of-the-art facilities attract talent, creativity and collaboration. Without sustained investment, America's scientific infrastructure cannot support world-class learning, research or technology commercialization. This session aims to distinguish development from deployment activities and to articulate the particular contributions that universities, national laboratories and private companies make to assert American leadership in the global nuclear enterprise.
