The University Center for Regional Economic Innovation at MSU will be holding a full-day event featuring presentations on innovative economic development tools, models, policies, practices, student technical assistance projects and Michigan inventions. The Summit will be held on September 6th at the Kellogg Center in East Lansing.
The REI at MSU has been established to bring together and establish networks between Michigan higher education institutions, local public and private sector leaders, workforce development boards, community action agencies, state agencies, public utilities, commercial lenders and EDA Economic Development Districts. The goal is to support regional commercialization efforts; advancing entrepreneurship; and cultivate a high-skilled regional work force through strategic partnerships and collaboration.
