The Battelle Center was established at the John Glenn College of Public Affairs in 2006 through the generosity of Battelle, the world’s largest non-profit research and development organization and long-time neighbor to The Ohio State University. Originally the Battelle Center focused on improving education in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines. In 2011, it pivoted toward the challenges of encouraging innovation and economic development. In 2016, the partnership between Battelle and the Glenn College was strengthened with the inclusion of Ohio State’s College of Engineering in the center. Today, these organizations and Ohio State’s Government Affairs Office provide advice and support to the center's director.
