The Sandia National Laboratories asked the Board on Science, Technology, and Economic Policy (STEP) to hold a one-day symposium to review Sandia's proposal to develop a science and technology park. In light of the importance of industry-laboratory cooperation for the STEP Board's project on Government-Industry Partnerships for the Development of New Technologies, the Board convened a workshop bringing together executive branch officials, congressional staff, representatives from the private sector, and regional economists to discuss the Sandia S&T park initiative. The Sandia S&T Park, which Sandia National Laboratories, the City of Albuquerque, and the State of New Mexico are jointly developing, is a 285 acre site located adjacent to Sandia National Laboratories. Groundbreaking for the park took place in May, 1999.
