Spotlight: Ohio Innovation Exchange

New Online Platform Drives Innovation by Connecting Ohio’s Research Universities with Industry

The Ohio Department of Higher Education launches the Ohio Innovation Exchange

The Ohio Innovation Exchange (OIEx), launched in September 2018 by the Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE), connects industry with faculty, students, equipment, and facilities available at Ohio’s research universities. OIEx consolidates these academic resources from multiple universities into a single, searchable, and easily accessible web portal at, allowing industry to find expertise to advance products, services, and research.

An initiative of ODHE and originally developed by four Ohio universities with industry support from the Ohio Manufacturing Institute, OIEx is now a platform providing industry in search of expertise with access to more than 13,000 faculty and 1000 resources from the following universities:

  • Case Western Reserve University
  • Cleveland State University
  • The Ohio State University
  • Ohio University
  • The University of Akron
  • The University of Cincinnati

From research partnerships, intellectual property, and technology licensing opportunities, to business development and even student internships, OIEx brings those connections to bear.
