Why Should the State Invest in University Research? The Issue.
Ohio Board of Regents
This brief will look at the reasons the state should continue to invest in research. In addition, the paper will provide information about how funding is used for a typical laboratory, and it will highlight a few of the exciting research projects currently being carried out at Ohio's universities. There are three primary reasons why the state should continue to invest in research: (1) The state?s investment leverages larger federal and industrial research grants; (2) As the primary teaching mode for training graduate students, research is a critically important part of workforce development for high-value jobs; and (3) Research provides the foundation for a high proportion of the innovations that lead to new commercial products, and new jobs. This brief also provides an example of how funding for a typical laboratory is used, and examples of some of the research projects at Ohio's universities.
