About State Government and Community Relations

Building strong and productive bridges with Berkeley Lab's neighbors and with local, state and federal officials is critical to ensuring that great science continues to thrive at the Lab. The Office of State Government and Community Relations exists to serve as a resource for community members and officials who wish to learn more about the Lab, its future and its impact on the surrounding communities. The office is also a conduit for Lab scientists to share the significance of their scientific endeavors with our neighbors, community leaders and government representatives.

Being a valued member of our community is one of Berkeley Lab's highest priorities. We hope our efforts can help us continually build stronger community relationships.

Our philosophy as a neighbor is simple. Along with engaging the public in what we do, we hope our active involvement in the community — through a variety of community activities, outreach programs and education — can build a legacy of trust and support for the crucial scientific research we do. We look to maintain an ongoing dialogue with community members and regional leaders, forging an open and mutually beneficial relationship.
