Discovery Themes



Ohio State's Discovery Themes Initiative connects and builds on expertise across six campuses, 15 colleges, 105 departments and more than 220 centers and institutes at Ohio State. Interdisciplinary teams of researchers have come together to accelerate new discoveries and translate knowledge into practical solutions for meaningful impact. With an emphasis on data-driven solutions, these efforts are supported by the recently established Translational Data Analytics Institute.

The College of Engineering and its research collaborators are uniquely positioned to address several challenges defined by the Discovery Themes. The college's strategic plan will leverage the university’s investments in the Discovery Themes, while supporting the economic interests of the State of Ohio.
