Facilitating a culture of interdisciplinary collaboration


Founded in December 2012 by a collection of new and energetic Ohio State faculty, postdocs and staff, the STEAM Factory is a diverse and inclusive grass-roots network in the Ohio State community that facilitates creative and interdisciplinary collaboration, innovation and dissemination.

Our Goals

  • To provide opportunities for collaboration that enhance and drive innovation within all research disciplines;
  • To provide linkages and interdisciplinary interactions between Ohio State departments and colleges; and
  • To increase the public awareness, understanding and impact of Ohio State research.
