Highlights from the 2013 program review in Santa Fe, N.M.

Fellows, alumni and friends joined DOE laboratory and headquarters staff in Berkeley, California, June 23-25 for the 2014 DOE NNSA SSGF Annual Program Review. With the multi-day meeting being held in the San Francisco Bay area, fellows also toured nearby Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, including access to the National Ignition Facility.

A benefit of the fellowship, the annual program review provides a unique opportunity to connect people from a variety of disciplines and organizations, all while serving to build and strengthen relationships that will last a lifetime.
