ONAMI’s roots stem from a commitment to grow research revenue and accelerate related commercialization opportunities for Oregon. To deliver on this commitment, the organization offers matching grants for collaborative research, promotes shared user facilities for industry and academic researchers, and oversees a commercialization gap fund.
This model has been more than successful, frequently cited as a national example for innovation-based economic development and regional collaboration in advanced technology.
