About Us

The mission of the Industry Liaison Office (ILO) is to cultivate and foster mutually beneficial relationships with corporations worldwide by supporting their innovation and research needs and aspirations through access to Ohio State’s faculty, students and assets.

Dr. Daniel Kramer, Associate Vice President, Office of Research, guides the endeavors of the ILO. He is an accomplished Senior Project and Operations Manager with over 25 years of product development and technology maturation experience in both industry and academic settings. In his previous role as ILO Director for the College of Engineering, Dan built an extensive network of industry partnerships and helped streamline accessibility to the college.

The ILO office works collaboratively with the OSU Discovery Theme (DT) Initiatives by providing programmatic leadership support, contributing to the development of best practices for large-scale, collaborative, pan-university initiatives, and creating synergistic experiences for students, faculty, and our industry partners.
