Ohio’s first “innovation hub” in NW Ohio.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, Lt. Gov. Jon Husted and Ohio Department of Development Director Lydia Mihalik announced Monday the creation of Ohio’s first “innovation hub”. A press release from the governor’s office described this as a new collaboration that will enhance northwest Ohio’s position as a global leader in glass science, engineering, technology and production. The announcement came during an event Monday in Perrysburg. Supported by more than $31.3 million in state funding from the Ohio Innovation Hubs Program and $10.4 million in local investment, the new Northwest Ohio Glass Innovation Hub will build on Toledo’s legacy as the “Glass Capital of the World” to accelerate innovation and job growth in both the glass sector and solar industry, which relies heavily on glass.
