How it Works

Colleges and Universities

Ohio's universities have thousands of experts and resources to benefit industries of all types, but these are often difficult to locate. OIEx consolidates information from university researchers and laboratories into a searchable, easy-to-use portal to quickly connect industry and university experts.

Business and Industry

Industry leaders have breakthrough ideas, but could use academic experts and resources to push them to fruition. OIEx provides access to more than 8,250 faculty and 200 resources from campuses and laboratories across the state, putting those connections at your fingertips through a powerful, easy-to-use web portal.
