Sandia, Georgia Tech enter research partnership

A memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the Georgia Institute of Technology and Sandia National Laboratories has been reached that will encourage strategic cooperation on research deemed to be of national importance, Sandia Labs announced Tuesday.

With their partnership they aim to cooperate on research into nationally critical issues which includes energy security, computer science, cybersecurity and data analytics. They also want to promote and encourage researchers by allowing them to work with complex programs in the early stages of their course of study. The final goal for the partnership is to bring to fabrication and marketing their jointly developed technology.

“It is exciting to see the long-term collaboration between Georgia Tech and Sandia move to an even higher level,” Jill Hruby, Sandia Labs vice president for energy, nonproliferation and high-consequence security, said. “I’m confident the common culture and research interests at our institutions combined with the focus that comes from this MOU, will produce innovative solutions and high quality research.”

Both institutions have a long history of collaboration working in areas of energy systems, computer science and multiple other areas. Students and faculty at Georgia Tech will have the opportunity to complete research work at a national lab, which could lead to employment after their academic careers.
