• Manufacturing: $2.9 million for research, development and training.

• Energy: $4.2 million to harness ocean waves for power needs. Goal is to build a commercial wave energy park with 500 megawatts installed in 10 years.

• New research centers: $5.2 million for the Oregon Translational Research and Drug Development Institute, and $2.5 million for the Bio-Economy and Sustainable Technology Center.

• Nanotech: $9 million to continue funding the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute.
