College of Engineering Dean David Williams has been appointed by Governor John Kasich to the Ohio Third Frontier Advisory Board.

Created in 2002, the Ohio Third Frontier is an unprecedented commitment to create new technology-based products, companies, industries and jobs. In May 2010, the Ohio Third Frontier was extended through 2015 indicating a widely held understanding that technology and innovation will lead to economic prosperity both today and for future generations.

The 16-member Advisory Board comprises leaders from industry, academia, and government, who advise on strategic planning, general management, and coordination of programs associated with the Ohio Third Frontier.

The $2.3 billion initiative's strategic intent is to create an "innovation ecosystem" that supports the efficient and seamless transition of great ideas from the laboratory to the marketplace.
