Controlled Environment Food Production Research Complex

Dec. 23, 2020

We are excited to announce the ground-breaking for the Controlled Environment Food Production Research Complex (CEFPRC)!



This new, unique facility will support the needs of our faculty and students unlocking human potential for innovation. This greenhouse of the future will be a place for collaborative research, sustainable food production, and distinguish Ohio State from other institutions. The CEFPRC will be located at the Waterman Agricultural and Natural Resources Laboratory.

This facility will provide technology and research that will impact all Ohioans and beyond.

We are deeply fortunate to have partners like Nationwide and the Nationwide Foundation committed to advancing and sustaining life. We also want to extend our gratitude to our donors that have supported this facility and invested in the future of Waterman.

As we continue our mission, we invite you to get involved and support growth at Waterman. Learn more about CEFPRC.
