In the News: Ohio State Trustees Hear Plans for West Campus Innovation District

Ohio State University’s board of trustees members heard plans for the proposed west campus "innovation district" on Thursday, as well as ideas for an improved Olentangy River trail and centralized recreation fields.

The master planning and facilities committee reviewed plans for two buildings that would anchor this district.

One is the Interdisciplinary Research Facility, which would include research labs, meeting spaces and cafes. The other is an Energy Advancement and Innovation Center for a technology commercialization partnership with energy management company Engie.
