Higher Education's Role in Economic Development


February 7, 2011



With Governor Cuomo and President Obama both calling higher education the “key driver” of the innovation economy, the Institute pulled together five experts from the University at Albany to talk about what universities can do to help New York State. Lewis talked about how university-based business incubators have exceptional track records in spurring the creation of new business.
