Conducting an Economic and Workforce Profile of Hawaii’s Technology and Innovation Industries
Working with the Hawaii Science and Technology Council as well as the Hawaii Department of Business, Economic Development, and Tourism, the Council for Community & Economic Research (C2ER) and the Center for Regional Economic Competitiveness (CREC) developed a comprehensive assessment of the state’s technology clusters.
The project focused on identifying the current and potential cluster linkages for nine technology areas as well as to explore the workforce needs of those clusters. C2ER/CREC involved extensive efforts to interview technology companies throughout the state. In addition, C2ER/CREC provided training and technical assistance aimed at helping the state develop the capacity to continue this research after the project’s completion.
