Whether setting up entrepreneurial ecosystems or supporting the creation of advanced manufacturing clusters, these organizations must partner for initiatives to be most successful. Participants will meet university, college, state, and local officials who are bridging the ED-ed gap to win grants and undertake innovative projects in four important spaces for collaborative effort: assisting entrepreneurs, offering relevant workforce training, leveraging assets, and conducting research to grow high-tech manufacturing. Panelists will lead breakout discussions on lessons learned and discuss actionable emerging mechanisms for greater higher ed-EDO collaboration.Learn More / Register Use coupon code “UEDA15” when registering.
