Cleveland, OH announces major new partnership to launch innovation district

Plans were announced last week for the “Cleveland Innovation District,” something described as a generational opportunity to invest in the city’s leading health care, research and education institutions to put the Northern Ohio region on the world map for virus and pathogen innovation.

Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals Cleveland, MetroHealth, Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland State University will collaborate to create the Global Center for Pathogen Research & Human Health on the Clinic’s main campus. That project will serve as the district’s anchor. Ohio is committing $265 million in funding from its Development Services Agency and private funding from JobsOhio.
