The Ohio State Office of Knowledge Enterprise (OKE) in collaboration with STEAM Factory is here to help! We are excited to present BIIG Collaborations @ STEAM Factory - a series of networking events held at the STEAM Factory’s Franklinton location that are aimed at breaking down traditional research silos, facilitating new connections, and launching your next BIIG Idea in Biotechnology.

Biotechnology is considered a critical and emerging technology and a priority technology area for federal agency missions and research and development efforts. It is poised to make significant impacts in affecting change to many societal challenges, including improving health outcomes against diseases and cancer, reducing fossil-fuel dependencies, combatting climate change, remediating contaminated environments, and alleviating global food insecurity.
