Rivals united

Ohio State and Michigan working together? Believe it or not, in the realm of academics and research it’s not uncommon for the historic rivals to collaborate on projects that benefit the common good.

That is the case with a new partnership that teams the universities with a Columbus-based nonprofit to establish a $148 million high-tech manufacturing research institute. This institute will create up to 10,000 new jobs, as well as new products ranging from better Navy ship hulls to lighter, safer, “greener” cars.

“We are proud to be working with such an outstanding founding group in establishing this important national institute, which will bring together resources from industry, government and academia to enhance the region’s competitiveness, create opportunities for students and generate economic growth,” said Ohio State Interim President Joseph A. Alutto.
