EHE Researcher Expertise

This new tool allows users to browse education and human ecology research topics and find out which EHE researchers have expertise in that area. Clicking on the name of the researcher will lead users to a bio page that provides a detailed profile of the researcher.


EngageOSU is an online portal into the research portfolio of The Ohio State University. It enables users to search the entire scope of our research experts. It covers research in all fields – including the life sciences, physical sciences, engineering, humanities and the liberal arts – and covers all Ohio State campuses. The results list provides a list of faculty with their associated research productivity – number of collaborators, articles, books, grants, etc. Clicking on the faculty name in the return list provides a visual representation of their collaborators and the Ohio State program with which they are associated. Clicking on the blue person icon provides a word cloud and the details on research productivity as well as contact information.

Ohio Innovation Exchange (BETA)

The Ohio Innovation Exchange is a new initiative developed jointly by four major Ohio universities – Case Western Reserve University, Ohio University, The Ohio State University and the University of Cincinnati – provides access to more than 8,250 faculty profiles and 200 resources from the four universities. The purpose of this beta release is to (i) highlight the work completed to date, (ii) demonstrate functionality to other Ohio-based university partners and (iii) serve as a pre-RFP reference point for potential vendors. In subsequent releases, this innovative knowledge management framework will provide users with interactive tools to connect faculty, staff and students with industry in new information-driven ways.

Research In View

Ohio State’s institution-wide system aggregates, standardizes and links information for every scholarly activity. Public search functionality is now live within Research in View. User settings determine the public/private setting for each entry within the Research in View profile.

STEAM Factory

The STEAM Factory (Researcher Network Facilitating a Culture of Interdisciplinary Collaboration) is a diverse and inclusive grassroots network in the Ohio State community that facilitates creative and interdisciplinary collaboration, innovation and dissemination. The goals are to provide opportunities for collaboration that enhance and drive innovation within all research disciplines; to provide linkages and interdisciplinary interactions between Ohio State departments and colleges; and to increase the public awareness, understanding and impact of Ohio State research.
