U.S. Rep. David McKinley, R-W.Va., has made an agreement with leaders from eight colleges and universities in the Ohio Valley to create a research consortium to both spur the economy and come up with ways to tackle some of the region’s most pressing issues.
“Today’s signing and the official establishment of the Ohio Valley Research Consortium is great news for our area,” McKinley said. “Encouraging research and attracting investment will not only strengthen the capabilities of each participating school, but by working together, we can find ways to tackle some of our most pressing issues from access to clean water and affordable health care, to strengthening our cybersecurity and preventing further substance abuse.
