#UrbanInnovation


Urban innovators break from common practice to develop long lasting transformations in their communities, neighborhoods, and cities.

 

 On June 10 we release a National Urban Innovation Report and highlight national and local case studies that break new ground and change the game for urban areas in New Jersey and beyond!

 

The Rutgers Center for Urban Entrepreneurship and Economic Development, Cornwall Center for Metropolitan Studies, New Jersey Urban Mayors Association and the New Jersey Public Policy Research Institute are working together to highlight and explore urban innovation that leads to turban transformation. Funded by the Surdna Foundation (http://www.surdna.org/), the ultimate goal of the Best Practices in Urban Innovation (BPUI) Project is to shift the national discourse on urban areas away from problem identification and towards problem solving. By focusing on best practices in urban innovation, we can bring attention to what is working and discuss the process for scaling up these solutions to practitioners in other urban areas.

 

We define urban innovation as a break from common practice to develop long lasting transformations in their communities, neighborhoods, and cities. 

 

On June 10, we will hold a symposium that and presents the National Urban Innovation Report and highlights eight (8) case studies of innovative organizations that are having a significant impact on economic opportunity.  Participants in this symposium will also be able to part of a facilitated work session that will determine ways to apply national innovations to our local urban areas.
