Founded by a collection of young and energetic OSU faculty, postdocs and staff, the STEAM Factory is a diverse and inclusive grass-roots network in the OSU community that facilitates creative and interdisciplinary collaboration, innovation and dissemination.
The twin cores of STEAM Factory activity are Collaboration and Dissemination.
Collaboration: The STEAM Factory provides a space where researchers from all disciplines can broaden their perspectives, share resources, spark creative research ideas and form collaborations across areas of common interest.
Dissemination: The STEAM Factory helps to bridge the gap between OSU and the Columbus community through research dissemination and outreach that is accessible, approachable and combines formal and informal learning.
- To provide opportunities for collaboration that enhance and drive innovation within all research disciplines;
- To provide linkages and interdisciplinary interactions between OSU departments and colleges; and
- To increase the public awareness, understanding and impact of OSU research.
