13 Nov UW-Parkside, CATI honored for tech-based economic development
Kenosha, Wis. – The University of Wisconsin-Parkside School of Business and Technology and the Center for Advanced Technology and Innovation have been honored for technology-based economic development by the International Economic Development Council.
The IEDC called the organizations a “clear standout” among entities serving population centers between 50,000 and 200,000, citing their development of inovaDRIVE, a technology-based economic development strategy.
inovaDRIVE leverages faculty, students, and corporate R&D divisions to identify and meet the technology needs of small and mid-sized manufacturers in southeastern Wisconsin.
It also was established to create more value-added services for entrepreneurs and existing Racine and Kenosha County companies, and to explore areas of new product development and move existing products into higher-margin markets.
