The Ohio State University is perfectly suited to lead the future of American manufacturing - and the renewal of this nation’s founding industry - with a novel, collaborative and forward-thinking model which creates an exciting environment of productive innovation.

CDME provides industry with a simple expeditious way to access all the technical and physical assets of the university and surrounding research community. Easy contract mechanisms and unambiguous business terms allow industry certainty around the value proposition of the engagement before any project begins.

CDME was designed to support either single partner projects or multi-partner synergistic collaborations for companies of every size. CDME will work with industry partners to identify non-competitive partners for projects and seek out federal research dollars, where applicable, to leverage against industry funding.
