OTEC will add a unique dimension to what is already a vibrant collaboration between industry, academe and state government," said Skip Rung, president of ONAMI
, the state's signature research center.
The building is also part of a statewide initiative - the Oregon Nano-science and Microtechnology Institute, or ONAMI
- that includes the UO, Oregon State University, Portland State University, the federal Pacific Northwest National Laboratories and high-tech industries.
Association and media sponsors include MIT Technology Review, Small Times, NASA Tech Briefs, Lux Research, Nanoclarity, ONAMI
, Invest In France Agency, Minatec and Italian Trade Commission.
For example, ONAMI
and UO researchers are guiding the development of safer new materials and technologies such as green nanotechnologies using environmentally friendly green chemistry.
Otherwise, please step aside so that the citizens of Eugene are not led to believe that ONAMI
is as sugar-coated as the newspaper has portrayed it thus far.
Having the ability to work at the nanoscale and understand the basic building blocks of our world is going to result in tremendous breakthroughs and deliver benefits for a wide variety of products and services in both the short and long term," said Skip Rung, director of ONAMI
The first project was funded mostly by a grant from the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute, or ONAMI
, and a private donation from Lorry Lokey, the building's namesake.
Unique to this online community, the ONAMI
site offers visitors functional tools that facilitate real-world commercialization of innovations from ONAMI
funding is shared among OSU, the UO, Portland State University and the Pacific Northwest National Labor- atory.
