The Ohio Technology Consortium (OH-TECH), a division of the Ohio Department of Higher Education, is dedicated to advancing education, workforce development, scientific research and innovation for Ohio. Composed of three organizations — OARnet, OhioLINK and the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) — OH-TECH participated in a diverse range of outreach initiatives in 2023 to engage the communities it serves and connect to new audiences.

Staff from dozens of computing centers across the nation participated in the Ohio Supercomputer Center's AI Bootcamp for Cyberinfrastructure Professionals, gaining new skills to support AI research.

The Management Council and OARnet will boost the bandwidth of Ohio's PreK-12 schools from 10 to 100 Gbps thanks to an ESSER Fund grant.

OhioLINK’s 117 members will migrate to software capable of managing the electronic future of library collections in a stable and secure environment.
