In 2017, Oregon State University set a new record for research funding. Cynthia Sagers, Vice President for Research, discusses the impact behind the numbers and what this funding means for the state of Oregon and beyond.
Oregon State University grants and contracts totaled almost $336 million in the 2016 fiscal year. Led by an 11-percent increase in federal funding and a steady rise in private-sector support, research revenues reached their second-highest level ever, enabling work in public health, the environment, advanced engineering and projects to help develop Oregon’s and the nation’s economy.
