2021 Project Series

Each year, the MSU-EDA University Center for Regional Economic Innovation (REI) organizes the Innovate Michigan! Summit, a conference that brings together economic experts and enthusiasts alike to share, learn, and create unique and innovative approaches to economic development and revitalization in the State of Michigan. 

In order to prepare for the upcoming year, REI needs your help to decide what topics to solicit Co-Learning Plan authors for. Please take our survey to consider several potential topics and rate how likely each is to create or retain jobs and/or businesses in economically distressed communities or regions of Michigan.
