On Thursday,  Akron Ascent Innovations welcomed a group of Ukrainian delegates visiting the Akron Global Business Accelerator.  The delegates were shown demonstrations of electrospinning in action and real life applications of nanotechnology.  They were particularly excited to learn that their home region was an early pioneer in electrospinning technology.

The delegates have been studying Accountable Governance through the Open World Program.  Their visit was organized by the Akron International Friendship (AIF) group, and included a week’s stay with a host family and visits to Summit and Portage County government offices, University Park Alliance, Akron Community Foundation, the Ukrainian Museum, among others, and a range of local cultural activities.
