Experts at the University of Oregon engage in a variety of relationships that range from informally answering a few questions for the community or industry, to collaborating on multi-million dollar sponsored research projects. Recent participants in university-industry collaborations efforts at UO include:
- Voxtel, FEI, SpectraWatt, and Intel have made use of the Center for Advanced Materials Characterization in Oregon (CAMCOR) facility for materials characterization. Assets available at CAMCOR include $30 million in cutting-edge nano-characterization and fabrication equipment. CAMCOR brings together researchers from academia and industry to solve problems in chemistry, geology, archaeology, nanoscience, materials science, bioscience, and optics.
- Avant Assessment, LLC has worked with the Center for Applied Second Language Language Studies (CASLS) to create innovative Web-based products and services that meet the rapidly growing demand for foreign language training.
- ESRI, the industry leader in GIS software, worked with UO's InfoGraphics Laboratory to produce the Cultural Atlas of the Ancient Mongolian Altai.
- LSI Logic and Dune Sciences, Inc. have collaborated with UO's Materials Science Institute (MSI)
UO's Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact will create even more opportunities for collaboration with industry.
The Knight Campus strategy is centered on five priorities:
- Catalyze Impactful Convergent Research Collaborations
- Accelerate the Innovation Cycle
- Train the Next Generation of Applied Scientists
