COLUMBUS- State Rep. Kathleen Clyde (D-Kent) announced today that the state has released $96,527 to Kent State University for two projects through the Ohio Third Frontier program’s Technology Validation & Start-up Fund, which works to commercialize new and advanced technologies.


"Through world-class research, Kent State continues to develop innovative technologies,” Rep. Clyde said. “By introducing these technological developments into the market, KSU continues to expand the successful technology sector in Northeast Ohio.”


$50,000 was awarded to assist KSU’s Liquid Crystal Institute (LCI) to develop electro-optic switches based on liquid crystals. $46,527 was also awarded to the LCI to develop printed electronics and sensors using ink jet printing and specialty inks. The projects will receive an equal funding match from Kent State.


The Ohio Third Frontier Program was created by Ohio voters with the purpose of creating new technology-based products, companies, industries and jobs. In May 2010, the Ohio Third Frontier was extended through 2015. The $2.3 billion initiative provides funding for innovative ventures, entrepreneurial support, project development and expansion of a skilled talent pool that can support technology-based economic growth. 


Rep. Clyde represents the 75th Ohio House District, serving Kent, Ravenna, Streetsboro, and central and southern Portage County.
