Research Grants and Contracts

Oregon State University research funding reached $308.9 million, its highest level ever, in the 2015 fiscal year, which ended June 30.

A near doubling of revenues from licensing patented technlolgoies and an 8.5 percent increase in the competitive federal funding fueled research on a range of projects including advanced ocean-going research vessels, the health impacts of pollution and sustainable materials for high-speed computing.

"This is phenomenal achievement. OSU research is solving global problems and providing innovations that mean economic growth for Oregon and the nation," said Cynthia Sagers, OSU's vice president for research.
