The Microproducts Breakthrough Institute is a unique collaboration between Oregon State University and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory focused on the development and commercialization of microchannel-based technologies for energy, medical, environmental and national security applications. Formed in 2003, the MBI model is to include academic, federal laboratory and industrial researchers in the same facility and to support the researchers with unique fabrication, modeling and testing capabilities tailored to the development of microchannel devices.
The Safer Nanomaterials and Nanomanufacturing Initiative (SNNI) is the leading green nanotechnology effort in the world and ONAMI’s largest research collaboration. ONAMI, the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute is Oregon’s first Signature Research Center created for the purpose of growing research in the areas of nanoscale science and microtechnologies, and accelerating job growth from commercialization of that research.
1. Promote the Commercialization of products designed and developed through the Science of Nanotechnology.
2. Advocate continued US spending through the National Nanotechnology Initiative. America must continue the funding of NNI from R&D to commercialization.
3. Inform membership with regard EHS regulation from Federal (EPA and FDA) and State Governments. Monitor proposed legislation from Federal and State government.
