“The aerospace industry is poised to grow exponentially over the next few years in the Dayton region,” Beagle said. “This Third Frontier funding allows the University of Dayton to be at the forefront of the cutting edge technology critical to realizing the full potential of job creation this industry offers.”
The University of Dayton will provide more than $3.3 million in matching funds for the project.
The Ohio Third Frontier’s Innovation Platform Program supports near-term commercialization platforms at Ohio higher education institutions and non-profit research organizations. Its goal is to link the development and innovation occurring at Ohio colleges, universities, or not-for-profit research institutions to specific needs of Ohio companies.
Senator Beagle is a member of the Third Frontier Advisory Board, which provides support and advice on strategic planning and general management and coordination of programs associated with the Ohio Third Frontier.
