Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and the University of Washington (UW) Space Policy and Research Center (SPARC) are working together to advance solutions in science, technology, and policy topics affecting United States activities in space.
Through a memorandum of understanding, the two research organizations have established a formal partnership to increase opportunities for:
- Collaborative research
- Joint publication
- Student internships
- Exchange of expertise and technical capabilities
Successful collaboration between PNNL and UW SPARC can lead to new research programs, joint pursuit of funding opportunities, and a greater impact on U.S. space-related technologies, policies, laws, and diplomacy.
