Oregon State University continues to lead the way in practical, problem-solving research that improves lives, supports sustainable use of natural resources, and drives economic growth to transform our future for the better.

Oregon State’s researchers are top-ranked in their fields and focus on cross-cutting research themes to facilitate the convergence of transdisciplinary research, education, outreach, and engagement.


These activities cover a broad spectrum of disciplines in the natural and social sciences. Below are examples chosen from the transdisciplinary research themes identified in the MSI Strategic Plan.

If you see your project missing, please contact the MSI office to work with us to have it added to these examples.
