INFO: Besides the above list of speakers, others available for interviews following a brief program include Rich Linton, chair of the OUS Research Council, representatives of OHSU and the seven OUS campuses, donors who are or will be investing, and about 50 business and government leaders.

Speakers will share news about implementation of the University Venture Development Fund, which is enhancing collaborative research efforts by Oregon's public universities. Gov. Ted Kulongoski signed the legislation (Senate Bills 582 and 853) into law earlier this year.

Key points include how this program is expected to stimulate Oregon's "innovation economy" and specifics about the 60 percent tax credit for donors, which is limited to the first $14 million in eligible gifts.
