Statement from Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee regarding renewal of Third Frontier initiative

“I am deeply grateful to our state’s elected leaders for their strong, bi-partisan support for renewing the Third Frontier program. The facts are clear; the investment is working. The Third Frontier program has become a national model for public-private partnerships that transform research into results, enterprise into employment. During these challenging times, it is more important than ever to invest in our shared future. Doing so distinguishes our state as both entrepreneurial and forward-thinking. By realigning our economic base with innovation and the development of ideas, this strategic initiative fosters long-term opportunity and growth for Ohio and its citizens.”
