Washington Technology Center Regional Technical Services Microfabrication Lab Industries Initiative
Industry Initiatives

Through its Industry Initiatives, WTC invests in those industries and technologies that will ensure Washington a place at the top of the competitive global market. We launched our first initiative in 1995 with a $6.5 million investment over four years in microelectronic mechanical systems (MEMS) technology. In 2002, we formed the Northwest Energy Technology Collaborative to position Washington as the leader in energy technology industries. Now we’re developing a statewide strategy to develop process, programs, and support mechanisms for an integrated nanotechnology effort. We expect to expand the array of our investments as various technologies, new and old, become part of staying competitive.
