Groups coordinate planning for manufacturing lab

Imagine an advanced manufacturing lab where high-school and college students and entrepreneurs can all work together and where engineers, machinists and welders can interact.

This lab, known as the Mahoning Valley Innovation and Commercialization Center, will became a reality through the work of the Mahoning Valley Manufacturers’ Coalition, Youngstown State University, Eastern Gateway Community College, career and technical centers in Mahoning, Trumbull and Columbiana counties and Choffin Career and Technical Center in Youngstown, Youngstown schools and the Youngstown Business Incubator.
