Where Talent Meets Possibility

Cincinnati innovation district building rendering

History and Innovation

In March of 2020, the University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital formally announced their joint effort to promote and celebrate innovation in Cincinnati. The Cincinnati Innovation District is a unique ecosystem that plans to graduate an additional 15,000 STEM graduates and drive an additional $2 billion in research investment over the next 10 years. The research will apply ultramodern technologies across multiple life sciences and computer science disciplines in the Greater Cincinnati Region.

The University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital contribute $450 million each year in research. This research results in discoveries that become the basis for innovative startups in the tech and healthcare sectors.
