We are committed to developing needed science and technology for Ohio and the Nation
Parallax recognizes that there is a connection between technological prowess and national advancement. That is why we have helped to establish various government, academia and small business-motivated science and technology enhancement programs to do exactly that: enhance science and technology for the Nation. The effectiveness of these government-led programs administered by Parallax is that they are well-defined and align with national science and technology strategies and goals, particularly as they affect the academic and small business sectors. The goal, though these programs, is to connect the government and private sectors and contribute to the improvement of the entire innovation to impact spectrum in Ohio and the Nation.
