Bob Taft: New programs for high-tech skills training

Ohio’s workers must be trained and retrained to meet the demands of the 21st Century. Therefore, we’ll expand Jobs Challenge funding to enable two-year campuses to provide more training courses. We will create the Higher Skills Partnership to marshal the resources of two-year colleges and career centers, to jointly align and market their training services for Ohio businesses.

Bob Taft: $52M to support high-tech research

More Ohioans with higher skills are needed to attract the high tech jobs of the future, and we have an ambitious technology agenda. The Ohio Plan will provide $40 million to support research and development in bio, nano and information technology. A new Biomedical Facilities Fund will provide $12 million to leading research institutions. And our Technology Action Fund will strengthen our ability to compete for federal research dollars and provide funds for promising technology initiatives.
