In September, Lt. Gov Husted came to Cincinnati to roll out the Ohio IP Promise, establishing a statewide, best-in-class process for how universities cultivate the licensing of intellectual property developed by Ohio’s public universities. The initiative, which aims to strengthen the state’s economy, attract innovative researchers and serve as a magnet for investors and entrepreneurs, was based on UC’s reimagined technology commercialization process.
U.S. News and World Report recently ranked UC as a top public university for cooperative education in the United State and No. 3 overall. UC is regarded by Reuters as one of the world’s top 100 most innovative universities, while Forbes ranks the 1819 Innovation Hub among the top innovation centers in the country.
