The State of Innovation: Generating Ideas to Grow PA

Friday, October 25, 2019
11:00 AM – 2:00 PM

Pennsylvania’s once trailblazing innovation economy has grown stagnant.

States across the US have sprung ahead in key measures of innovation capacity and performance, resulting in economic growth and population increases. To remain competitive, Pennsylvania must embrace innovation.

Join us to dive deeper into the challenges that our commonwealth faces, and to help generate ideas to drive innovation and prosperity across all counties. Presenting findings from their newly released report, Ideas for Pennsylvania’s Innovation Policy, experts from the Brookings Institution will provide an in-depth keynote comparison and analysis of Pennsylvania’s innovation economy and its leading competition. Hear flash talks from leaders who are pioneering new initiatives in their communities, both urban and rural, and gain a new perspective to help drive growth in Pennsylvania.
