Following on its January 2006 report California's Federal Laboratories:
A State Resource, CCST has launched
a new publication series designed to highlight important technological contributions from the six largest
federal laboratories in California - Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory,
Sandia National Laboratories/California, Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and
the NASA Ames Research Center - which joined CCST as affiliate members in 2005. The Focal Point series explores
a particular research area or project at each facility in much greater detail than the earlier report,
highlighting their roles as vital catalysts for California's high-tech sector.
