On the Horizon: New Unique Business Clusters Will Get Funded; Billions of Dollars of New Investment
Universities, industry, research parks, innovation districts, economic development officials, cities, states and regions need to prepare.
Here are twelve suggestions if you are considering competing for a Regional Tech Hub:
1)Do a candid research and tech assessment of your region. Do you have unique capacity in one or more of these areas? Then you should begin to assemble a team to consider competing for one of the regional tech centers. If you don’t have an overwhelming advantage, prepare to go after NSF funding for individual research projects or university research labs in the selected topics.
4)Don’t go it alone
A webinar on the competition takes place on Oct. 28, 2pm-3pm EDT, with proposal due December 3, 2020. https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/8069372321608416013
