Ideas that influence the world: Our impact is global—from our teams of researchers dispatched around the world to study natural disasters, to the international businesses launched by enterprising faculty and alumni. But we also are committed to working with local enterprises to help improve the economic, social, and environmental landscape of the Pacific Northwest.

We collaborate with the Research Office through Oregon State University Advantage to connect business with faculty expertise, student talent, and world-class facilities to find solutions, bring ideas to market, and launch companies. We leverage Advantage Partnerships to help us reach our strategic goal of establishing the college as the partner of choice for industry, government, and academia.

We also have a stake in several joint research operations, such as the Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute, the Advanced Technology and Manufacturing Institute, and the Oregon Built Environment and Sustainable Technologies Center. The result of our collaboration shows—in new jobs, new spinouts, and better ways to do business.
