Los Alamos National Laboratory Richard P. Feynman Center for Innovation MBA Summer Internship Program
Los Alamos: Where Discoveries are Made! The Los Alamos National Laboratory was founded in 1943 as the secret home of the Manhattan Project. Since then, the Laboratory has attracted world-renowned scientists and Nobel Prize winners to create and test innovative solutions for some of the nation's most challenging economic, social, energy, and national security challenges. Many of these innovations, such as the supercomputer, GPS and the Human Genome Project, impact our worlds every day.
Richard P. Feynman Center for Innovation The Richard P. Feynman Center for Innovation (FCI) is inspired by the legacy of the incredibly brilliant, creative, and unconventional scientist. FCI is an innovation catalyst stewarding the Laboratory's talent, unique capabilities, and intellectual property to create disruptive opportunities for strategic industry partners, entrepreneurs, and venture capital. Within FCI, the Technology Engagement and Entrepreneurship Team connects Lab researchers with resources in technology product development to foster a stronger New Mexico economy and US national security advantage. The team also engages New Mexico entrepreneurs with Laboratory innovators to accelerate start-ups and grow technology- based products and companies.
