Ohio Third Frontier and NineSigma Invite the World to Join in Solving the Opioid Crisis

Oct 12, 2017 | News

The opioid epidemic in America is causing devastating human, social and economic impact, with the state of Ohio and the Midwest being hit particularly hard. Most of us know someone who has been affected by the opioid epidemic.

Ohio spends nearly a billion dollars each year addressing the opioid epidemic, attacking it from every direction,  including prevention, education, treatment and recovery, and law enforcement. Advancing innovation and technology is another way to ensure that no stone is left unturned as the state – and the nation – continues to fight this battle.

With this in mind, Governor John R. Kasich has asked the Ohio Third Frontier to commit $20 million to accelerate scientific and technological breakthroughs to address the U.S. opioid problem. Companies, institutions, innovators, entrepreneurs and citizen scientists around the world are invited to join the fight against the opioid epidemic. Our goal is to have these innovators propose novel ideas and solutions to address prevention, treatment, overdose avoidance and response – competing for recognition and monetary awards to support their continued development.
