The Ohio Technology Consortium (OH-TECH), a division of the Ohio Department of Higher Education, delivers world-class technologies, information and expertise to provide Ohioans with a strong foundation for education and workforce development, scientific research and business innovation.
Located at The Ohio State University, the Ohio Technology Consortium (OH-TECH) functions as an umbrella organization for Ohio’s statewide technology infrastructure, the Ohio Academic Resources Network (OARnet), the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), OhioLINK, eStudent Services and the newly established Research and Innovation Center.
Funded by the Ohio General Assembly through the Ohio Board of Regents, OH-TECH reports to the Chancellor of the Board of Regents. All business and legal services are provided by The Ohio State University, with direction from the Vice President of Research. Through committees and direct contact with faculty and student researchers, OH-TECH is well positioned to meet the needs of those who require our resources. And to plan for future acquisitions and services, OH-TECH relies upon the guidance of the Ohio Board of Regents, the Ohio State Office of Research, and the advice of committees to achieve and sustain national eminence.
The Ohio Technology Consortium (OH-TECH) celebrated the major milestones of its member technology infrastructure organizations as they observed notable anniversaries in 2022. OH-TECH, the umbrella organization for the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC), the Ohio Academic Resources Network (OARnet) and the Ohio Library and Information Network (OhioLINK), also marked its 10th year of service to the State of Ohio.
The Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC) and the Ohio Technology Consortium (OH-TECH) are saddened to learn of the passing of Charles Csuri, the "father of computer art." Chuck, as he was known, was a true pioneer with a remarkable talent for interdisciplinary work and a significant contributor to the creation and success of OSC and all that followed.
OARnet and OhioLINK have been awarded $12.1 and $2.5 million, respectively, from the Ohio Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) Fund through the Ohio Department of Higher Education. The funding will be used to increase available content and broadband and internet speeds at colleges and universities throughout Ohio.
