R&D Center Grant
R&D Center Grant Recipients
High corporate interest in the JobsOhio R&D Center Grant program has brought attention to domestic and international companies representing an array of industries.
In 2017, four companies, including Quality Electrodynamics (QED), received a JobsOhio R&D Center Grant. QED was the first recipient of the JobsOhio R&D Center Grant. The company opened the doors to its QED Research Center in late 2017. The center provides the research community and business leaders with a platform to develop innovative imaging solutions.
In the first half of 2018, four more companies – Nanogate, Pillar Technology, Weastec and Dana – received a grant, and additional grant announcements are expected on an ongoing basis. The grant program has been so successful that JobsOhio increased its funding authorization from $50 million to $100 million.
