Funds to help university centre develop materials and create Ohio jobs

magine rolling up and carrying a laptop computer in a scroll or cutting-edge lightweight panels for tractor trailers that dramatically reduce fuel consumption. Those are the type of innovations being researched in Ohio thanks in part to funding from the state's Third Frontier program.

Last month the Center for Multifunctional Polymer Nanomaterials and Devices, a 2005 Wright Center of Innovation located at Ohio State University, received $8 million in Third Frontier funding to help develop durable and fire-resistant nanocomposite materials and processes.
