Research and Innovation Showcase

The Research and Innovation Showcase is a celebration of Ohio State’s research, creative expression, innovation and entrepreneurship community who are making a difference across Ohio, the nation and world through their discoveries and entrepreneurial spirit. The annual event, hosted by the Enterprise for Research, Innovation and Knowledge, culminates in the awarding of Ohio State’s Innovator of the Year awards.

When seekers, creators, visionaries, and scholars connect refusing to yield to those who say it can’t be done, a better, more hopeful, and vibrant future emerges. 

This annual event celebrates those unsatisfied with the status quo and inspires more to wonder, inquire and discover new knowledge. Relive the events by watching the inspiring spotlight speakers and learning more about our Innovators of the Year. If you are posting on social media, use #OhioStateInnovates.
