6:15 - 6:30: 30-Second Mic (give us your technology business elevator pitch!!)
7:00 Program: Skip Rung and ONAMI: Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute
ONAMI is Oregon’s first "Signature Research Center" and an unprecedented collaboration among Oregon’s research universities and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. ONAMI’s dual mission is to grow “small tech” research in Oregon and commercialize technology in order to extend the success of Oregon’s world-leading "Silicon Forest" technology cluster. Since its inception in 2002, ONAMI researchers have attracted more than $110 million in grants in nanoscience and microtechnologies.
Robert D. "Skip" Rung is the President and Executive Director and will talk about:
Robert D. "Skip" Rung, ONAMI (http://www.onami.us/)
Mr. Rung is a senior high technology R&D executive with over 25 years of R&D management experience in CMOS process technology, application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) design and electronic design automation (EDA), IC packaging, MEMS, microfluidics, and inkjet printing.
Mr. Rung was asked in December 2003 to serve as the initial Executive Director of the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute (ONAMI), Oregon’s first “Signature Research Center” and an unprecedented collaboration among Oregon’s research universities and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. ONAMI’s dual mission is to grow “small tech” research in Oregon and commercialize technology in order to extend the success of Oregon’s world-leading “Silicon Forest” technology cluster, which includes the most advanced R&D and manufacturing operations for leading companies such as Intel Corporation, Hewlett-Packard Company, FEI Company, Invitrogen, Electro Scientific Industries, Planar Systems, Xerox Office Products, Tektronix, ON Semiconductor and many dynamic smaller firms. ONAMI has so far received $37M in state investment and approximately doubled Oregon’s annual federal and private research awards in the fields of nanoscience, green nanotechnology, nanoscale metrology, and microtechnology-based energy and chemical systems (MECS).
