Earlier this week, the creation of the Cleveland Innovation District was announced, which would focus on increasing innovation in the healthcare and IT sectors.
The district aims to generate over 20,000 jobs, including 10,000 in healthcare and IT sectors and 10,000 in indirect jobs over the next decade. The project will bring $565 million to develop the clinic’s new Global Center for Pathogen Research & Human Health.
Each of the Cleveland Innovation District will be bringing unique skills and areas of expertise to build a world-class health innovation destination for Cleveland and Ohio.
This partnership will seek to create jobs, transforms research, and educates the workforce of the future.
The pandemic drove the need for a robust public health ecosystem, which could hugely benefit from research, innovative treatment and effective, community-informed delivery of care, and a skilled workforce. This new innovation center and collaboration will help build Cleveland’s health innovation and education.
Moreover, University Hospitals will leverage their research projects and partnership in order to identify and attract new technology innovation for pharmaceutical development. Indeed, Cleveland State will invest in education and talent development to provide more degrees and learning opportunities in STEM fields.
Hence, thanks to the partnership, the university will be able to train the workforce needed for fields supported by the Cleveland Innovation District.
