State-Funded Research Network Creates Enriching Collaborations in Ohio

The Ohio Federal Research Network (OFRN), established in 2015, has awarded $15.6 million across 18 projects in the areas of aerospace, manufacturing, materials, communications, data analytics and energy storage. Six Centers of Excelence, currently organized and located at universities throughout Ohio are using this funding to win new economy-boosting endeavors. These investments are driven by the needs of national labs located in Ohio to spur the economy by enhancing innovative collaborations between colleges and small-to medium-sized companies. Case Western Reserve University is the leader of the Energy Storage and Integration (PRESIDES) Center of Excellence, and has received funding for research through OFRN.

On February 8th from 1:00pm-6:00pm at the Ohio Aerospace Institute, OFRN will host an Industry Mixer to inform the business community about this exciting program.
