A State taking on Economic Development

When talking about economic development, take a look at this web site: http://www.ncsu.edu/iei/

I just ran across it from an economic geographer's Web site. What I am reading more and more is about how local economies are relying on universities to understand how they work and provide incite, knowledge, technology and guidance through better education, research and ideas.

The Institute for Emerging Issues (IEI) is a think-and-do tank focused on tackling big issues that affect North Carolina's future growth and prosperity. From energy to fiscal modernization to improving our systems of higher education, IEI takes the lead in convening state leaders in business, higher education and government to address these issues early to prepare for future challenges and opportunities.
