Congress gives ONAMI $7 million: Grant is $5 million more than the local nanoscience group has received before

Abstract:
The Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute, which is headquartered at the Hewlett-Packard campus in Corvallis and has several Oregon State University scientists among its ranks, has $7.7 million in new federal funding for continuing projects.

While the collaborative group has received $37 million in state funding since 2003 — including $9 million in the current biennium — it previously had received only $1.9 million in direct funding from the federal government, said Skip Rung, ONAMI's executive director.

"It's a huge deal," he added.

"We've got some technology here that's important to the Department of Defense," said Ron Adams, dean of the OSU College of Engineering, and a member of the ONAMI board of directors.

The funding will pay for research into miniature tactical energy systems, safer nanomaterials and nanomanufacturing and for measuring devices.
