Conference on regional economic cluster development

Free event september 25th in Minneapolis: Regional Innovation Clusters and Economic Competitiveness

The Greater Minneapolis-St. Paul region and the Minnesota economy have benefited historically from competitive industries and innovative business, academic, and policy leadership.  This success is manifest through a concentration of corporate headquarters and innovation clusters in a range of industries – medical devices, life sciences, food, publishing, retailing, information technology, finance, insurance, and the arts, among others.

This forum will feature presentations and lessons learned from regional innovation cluster initiatives in Minnesota, Oregon, Massachusetts, South Carolina, and Puebla, Mexico, and will explore job and economic development strategies through state, local, and educational policies.
