Description

UEDA Summit 2020 Theme:

The Logistics of Economic Development:
Coordinating Talent, Innovation, & Place


Practitioners of economic development rely on strong ecosystems that involve many parts moving in a common direction to achieve common goals. The UEDA 2020 Summit will explore the inner-workings of these ecosystems, the elements that comprise the ecosystems, and how these pieces come together to achieve regional success, especially within the confines of talent, innovation, and creating a sense of place. We all have a role to play—higher education, economic development organizations, the public sector, and private partners. Together, throughout the Summit, we’ll work together as ecosystem partners to address ecosystem needs and drive regional prosperity.
