  • One year later = the power of regionalism drives collaboration with four parallel initiatives.
  • Clusters are connected If we see oil/gas, we’ll probably see plastics, chemicals, etc. Locations are very important Shows the diversification path that is possible for an economy/country
  • Industry clusters are geographic concentrations of interconnected firms and supporting organizations – representing a potent source of productivity and higher wages. Regional concentrations of skills and capital are present – but addressing the challenges and maximizing metropolitan potential requires better information about the basis for clustering and the degree to which industries and occupations are organized. Six Key Criteria • Strength of competitive advantage (existing or emerging) • Potential gain for industry cluster from private‐public collaboration • Degree of geographic distribution in the region • Potential to spur innovation • Potential to spur entrepreneurship • International strength Considering the 6 criteria the mayors choose three industries to begin focusing on: mayoral interviews for the qualitative piece and graduate student cluster diagnosis, analysis, vision and recommendations Cluster approach is about building RELATIONSHIPs
  • Reconnect physician base w/cluster Bridge gap between the U and business Need a database of information and resources
