The Oklahoma Nanotech Initiative (ONI) is a project coordinated by The State Chamber of Oklahoma and funded by the Oklahoma Center for the Advancement of Science and Technology (OCAST).

The ONI was created to bring Oklahoma to the forefront of the emerging field of nanotechnology, establishing the state as a global leader in the technical, industrial and economic arenas.

Our main objectives include:

•  Generating awareness of the emerging field of nanotechnology and educating Oklahomans about the potential impact of the industry on the state
•  Promoting Oklahoma and its resources as a valuable site for industry location
•  Serving as an informational hub for the academic, financial, industrial and business communities

Planting the seeds of nanotechnology in Oklahoma is an important investment in our state's future.

Because nanotechnology is still a relatively new industry, there are no clear industrial leaders, yet. Through The ONI, Oklahoma has a unique opportunity to position the state for a leading role in the emerging industry.

The role Oklahoma will eventually play in this promising new industry depends largely on actions taken today. Planting the seeds of nanotechnology in Oklahoma is an important investment in our state's future.
