Join your regional development peers on Wednesday, March 14 at 2:00 p.m. (EST) for an informative, relevant and timely (and free!) webinar that will showcase how various data tools designed by the Harvard Business School and the Indiana Business Research Center can be utilized by regional development organizations to create and update their Comprehensive Economic Development Strategies (CEDS). Both of these organizations developed these tools with support from the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA).
The webinar speakers will be:
Rich Bryden, Director of Information Products at Harvard’s Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness. Bryden will discuss how the U.S. Cluster Mapping website can be used by economic development practitioners to identify relative regional advantages, analyze cluster performance within a region, and find other cluster-based organizations throughout the U.S.
Timothy F. Slaper, Ph. D., Director of Economic Analysis with the Indiana University Indiana Business Research Center, will discuss how STATS America enables economic developers and local leaders to use the latest research on innovation and regional development to incorporate asset based approaches for economic development.
