The Future of You

bridge the gap between Academia and industry.

Ohio’s largest industry is polymers, with 2,800+ polymer focused companies and over $49 billion in shipment each year, all right here in Ohio. In addition to industry, there are numerous academic programs in and around Ohio that offer polymer focused degrees or conduct polymer specific research.

This presents an interesting opportunity having both academic and industry focus in such a small region. Our foremost goal as Polymer Initiative of Northeast Ohio (PiNO) is to attempt to bridge the gap between academia and industry, tapping the potential of the unique opportunity that Ohio provides.
