Big Waves at ONAMI

Good news from our friends at ONAMI. In their August News there were announcements of several successes and recognition for the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute, headquartered here in Corvallis. The first five years of ONAMI’s life have been exciting and productive.

ONAMI is more than the what’s here in the Valley, it is the first Oregon Signature Research Center. A cooperative venture among government and world-class nanoscience and microtechnology R&D institutions and industry in the Northwest. The principle research affliates in ONAMI are the University of Oregon, Oregon State University, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland State University, and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory .

Below is a sample of the good news and a link to the full newsletter.

Skip Rung, Executive Director

It’s official – the FY09 results are in, and there’s been no recession at ONAMI. Our research members collectively won a record $36.6M in new awards from federal and private sources. This is after subtracting $4.5M in internal subcontracts (which reflect growing collaboration among our institutions) and beforeany effects of federal stimulus spending. It is also four times higher than when we first started collecting data in FY04.
