Caroline Whitacre, vice president for research, delivered the annual state of research address on October 22, 2015. This year’s address was titled From Inputs to Impact: Changing the Conversation. 

Too often, the conversation about higher education and research focuses on numbers. But the full measure of our work is not seen from counting inputs like the amount of funding, or outputs such as the number of data repositories, or outcomes such as the number of publications. While these are important, it is the impact of our research that really makes a difference.

Learn what we can do to help change the national dialogue to one that celebrates the value of research. Hear some amazing ways Ohio State research is making an impact on our communities, the state, the nation and the world.

At the end of the address, view the 2015 Innovator of the Year awards presentation.
