Center for Regional Economic Issues (REI) Summary V.2.4

Center for Regional Economic Issues (REI) Summary V.2.4

Ratings: (0)|Views: 423 |Likes:
The REI Summary was created by a team of people from the Center for Regional Economic Issues (REI) at Case Western Reserve University in the Spring of 2005. This document provides an overview of the transformative work begun at the Center from 2003-2005 under the leadership of Ed Morrison, then Executive Director, REI.

The REI Summary tells the story of the important role of colleges and universities in regional economic development. The Summary provides a clear picture of the objectives, activities, and results of investing in a small team of research and practitioner leaders in Source Economic Development at a University to accelerate regional transformation.

Working with community leaders and consultants, the REI team - Ed Morrison, Betsey Merkel, Susan Altshuler, Matt Kozink, and Dennis Coughlin - coached, mentored, and trained leaders from business, civic, academic, and government to understand how to work in open systems, and to build open economic networks to increase regional social capital and strengthen emergent industry clusters in Northeast Ohio.

The Institute for Open Economic Networks (I-Open) is a not for profit spin off of REI. I-Open is based in Northeast Ohio and continues to work in collaboration with colleges, universities, libraries, organizations and government with citizens to advance regional transformation.
