Development of the Mahoning Valley Innovation & Commercialization Center (MVICC) Will Help Prepare Workers to Use Evolving State-of-the-Art Manufacturing Technologies

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – As manufacturing becomes increasingly advanced, the industry will need workers with more technical skills to work on and operate the high-tech equipment the manufacturing industry is using today and that will be developed in the future.

For Ohio manufacturers to meet this growing need, LIFT – Lightweight Innovations For Tomorrow – has joined a partnership among Mahoning Valley manufacturers, educators at all levels, and workforce developers, led by Youngstown State University Research Foundation (YSURF), to develop the Mahoning Valley Innovation & Commercialization Center (MVICC). This public- private partnership will create an educational and entrepreneurial hub to share facilities, equipment, and instructors – all necessary to build the educated and skilled manufacturing workforce for the region.
