Building the Ohio Innovation Economy symposium

A Symposium Organized by The U.S. National Academy of Sciences in cooperation with The University of Akron and NorTech.

Free conference to engage Ohio business and political leaders with high-level U.S. government officials and others positioned to help drive innovation, business formation, and growth in Ohio. We plan to convene local and national leaders to highlight the accomplishments and growth of the innovation ecosystem in Ohio, while also identifying needs, challenges, and opportunities.

Importantly, the conference will allow us to discuss a series of proposed initiatives to strengthen Ohio's innovation and technology infrastructure and identify areas where federal, state, and foundation contributions could generate positive synergies. The meeting will also draw attention to the scale and focus of foreign competitive programs and consider their implications for Ohio and the nation, and highlight Ohio's potential as a center for innovation. The National Academy plans to issue a report based on the conference that will reinforce these goals and enhance understanding of the accomplishments and potential of the state.
