RTI International promotes “Innovation Corridors” as an economic booster

RTI International recently released a regional economic development concept that leverages the innovation and placemaking assets within a 100-mile radius of an established, high-performing innovation hub.

The blueprint assesses how to generate higher-wage job opportunities and more equitable economic growth across a larger region in the coming decades through the concept of “Innovation Corridors.”

“The desire to foster more balanced growth across and within communities is no longer a goal to pursue but an obligation to fulfill,” writes Sara Lawrence, RTI International Program Director, in this article for WRAL TedchWire.
