Southern Innovation Report

The Southern Growth Policy Board has just released the 2006 report, Innovation with a Southern Accent, which focuses on creating a Southern culture of knowledge, where learning and innovation are primary social values, and essential to the region’s global competitiveness. The report’s recommendations include strategies for building the innovation capacity in the South through the creation, accumulation and application of knowledge.
The report presents the Southern Innovation System (SIS) as a mechanism for individuals, communities, states, and the South to support and cultivate innovation; and outlines several regional initiatives to grow emerging industries in the region.
Innovation with a Southern Accent includes regional and state-level data on educational attainment, venture capital, an overview of state policies on R&D including survey results about the South’s attractiveness for R&D, and profiles of innovative programs.
