NH University Research & Industry Plan

NH University Research & Industry Plan

UNTAPPED OPPORTUNITIES FOR ECONOMIC GROWTH

Across the country, high-wage jobs and robust innovation-based economies are associated with strong relationships among industries and research universities. New Hampshire has significant untapped potential to improve its economy by purposefully developing synergies between its industry and university research enterprises. But which types of industry and university research could set New Hampshire apart in the national and global economy? Where does New Hampshire have a competitive advantage over other states and regions? What are the opportunities for public and private sector investments to produce sustained and significant economic benefit?

A DATA-DRIVEN ROADMAP FOR ALIGNING ACADEMIC RESEARCH AND ADVANCED INDUSTRIES

The NH University Research and Industry Plan provides insights based on data-driven evidence of our state’s innovation strengths and suggests strategies to capitalize on opportunities. It provides a roadmap for the New Hampshire innovation economy that will inform strategic decisions about how the state can best use its assets and strengths to grow high wage jobs in industry clusters that set New Hampshire apart.

Rather than a broad economic development plan, the NH University Research and Industry Plan is focused on accelerating innovation-led development by aligning academia’s research strengths with the state’s substantial base of existing and emerging advanced industries.

The plan has identified three major innovation clusters where NH stands apart from other states and has great potential to grow: Advanced Manufacturing, Information Systems, and BioSciences.
