The ONF is excited to recognize and promote the contributions of both members (InnovatorsMembers) and nonmembers (Collaborators). Existing ONF Innovator Members may upgrade their membership by being recognized as an active collaborator on one or more ONF projects.  Collaborating Innovators are both Innovator members (paying ONF membership dues) as well as active community members contributing personnel and/or resources (minimum of 1 FTE or equivalent).  Adding collaborator recognition to an Innovator membership does not require any additional financial contribution beyond what is required for Innovator membership. Collaborators are active community members  Collaborators are active community members who are contributing personnel and/or resources to one or more ONF projects, but are not paying for membership and thus not receiving the additional member benefits. These companies and individuals can apply for Collaborator recognition, which if approved would result in recognition as a Collaborator on the relevant project page. 


Collaboration Recognition Process

Whether you are an Innovator aiming to become a Collaborating Innovator or an active community member shooting for Collaborator status, the The process is fairly straightforward. We : we want to know what you want to do, how you plan to do it, and when it will be done. 


  1. Your contributions will be monitored and reviewed by the project TST periodically. If you choose to complete your work in the project or stop contributing for a significant amount of time, the TST may remove Collaboration recognition. 
  2. By becoming a collaborator, you are opting-in to receive occasional emails from ONF about relevant project news and topics.  You may choose to opt-out of these communications.
