The Board consists of industry and university members. It has the authority to make financial commitments required to grow and sustain applied research and educational efforts. The Board represent the best interests of OMIC R&D and has four primary responsibilities:
The Tech Board includes technical representatives of industry and university members who have domain expertise within their organizations. They develop the portfolio of projects meeting industry members’ strategic needs and are accountable for the execution of research projects. Tech Board members construct and propose research projects for approval by the Board of Governors, and develop and update the Technology Roadmap, which is a five-year framework for OMIC R&D research projects. Members also recommend the acquisition of technologies and equipment required to support the Technology Roadmap.
“The kind of collaboration happening at OMIC hasn’t been seen since the old days of Bell Laboratories. Bringing companies together with universities working at the cutting edge of technology to pursue innovative research isn’t something you see very often. That combination of company expertise and university research is creating technical opportunities that produce amazing results.”
