June 27, 2014

In the Cluster Mapping for Economic Development training, participants engaged in an interactive exchange with Harvard Business School (HBS) experts on the value of regional cluster analysis and explored a new cluster mapping tool, developed HBS’s Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness with support from the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Economic Development Administration. The training was attended by economic development researchers and practitioners, representing public, private, and non-profit organizations across 19 states.
