Catalyzing Newport offers Webinar with Bruce Katz

On November 10, 2014, Catalyzing Newport will host a webinar with the Brookings Institute Vice President, Bruce Katz, and  selected leaders and government officials from across Rhode Island.

The geography of innovation is shifting and a new model for innovative growth is emerging. In contrast to suburban corridors of isolated corporate campuses, innovation districts combine research institutions, innovative firms and business incubators with the benefits of urban living. These districts have the unique potential to spur productive, sustainable, and inclusive economic development.

On June 9, the Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings released “The Rise of Innovation Districts,” a new report analyzing this trend by Brookings Vice President Bruce Katz and Nonresident Senior Fellow Julie Wagner.
