EDA University Center for
Regional Economic Innovation
We need you to submit your ideas to revitalize and strengthen Michigan's economy! These ideas can be tools, models, policies, or programs that improve the lives and business opportunities of those in your community. Past ideas include Makerspaces, Pop-Up Businesses and addressing the Skills Gap issue. No idea is too small. We want to hear new ideas along with innovative practices that may already be working in your community!
Through these new and innovative ideas, the University Center for Regional Economic Innovation will commission authors to research your idea and develop a Co-Learning Plan, which helps to disseminate your idea out to the REI Network for a better Michigan. Who knows, your idea may be Michigan's next major claim to fame!
