US Senator Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, is urging the US Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration to consider establishing a regional technology and innovation center in Ohio.

This will continue the state’s leadership in manufacturing and innovation, he wrote in a letter. He specifically cited industries ranging from sustainable polymers to artificial intelligence in Northeast Ohio.

The Tech Hubs Program was created by the CHIPS Act, and is designed to drive regional technology and innovation-led growth by strengthening a region’s capacity to create, commercialize and deploy critical technologies.

Brown urged EDA to consider Ohio’s applications when selecting locations for future centers for projects such as the Advanced Next Generation Aerospace Technologies in Southwest Ohio through the Cincinnati-Dayton Collaboration; a regional engine for semiconductors partnering with cloud computing and electric-vehicle manufacturing through the Columbus-Appalachia collaboration; solar technology development and manufacturing in northwest Ohio; and a range of industries ranging from sustainable polymers to artificial intelligence in Northeast Ohio.
