Economic Update Luncheon: The Blue Economy and Southern New England
Join us at Innovate Newport as we welcome Hilary Fagan, Executive VP of Business Development, RI Commerce Corporation, and Dr. Robert Johnson, Chancellor, UMass Dartmouth, to our first quarter Economic Update Luncheon, sponsored by People's Credit Union, at the Blue Innovation Symposium.
Southern New England has one of the oldest and most diverse maritime industry clusters in the world. From traditional ship building to marine robotics, the region is home to world-class companies, research universities, and key organizations such as the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and the US Naval Undersea Warfare Center (NUWC). Learn how state and federal initiatives are being formed to support marine technology firms and grow new ?blue? industry clusters in sectors like Offshore Wind, Marine Renewable Energy, and Aquaculture.
This special Economic Update Luncheon will be moderated by Dr. Tobias Stapleton, Dean Graduate Studies and Continuing Education, Salve Regina University.
