Live Webcast: The Rise of Innovation Districts: A New Geography of Innovation in America

June 9, 2014
9:30 amto11:30 am

The geography of innovation is shifting and a new model for innovative growth is emerging. In contrast to suburban corridors of isolated corporate campuses, innovation districts combine research institutions, innovative firms and business incubators with the benefits of urban living. These districts have the unique potential to spur productive, sustainable, and inclusive economic development.

On Monday, June 9, the Metropolitan Policy Program at Brookings will release “The Rise of Innovation Districts,” a new report analyzing this trend. The authors of the paper, Brookings Vice President Bruce Katz and Nonresident Senior Fellow Julie Wagner, will be joined by leaders from emerging innovation districts across the country to discuss this shift and provide guidance to U.S. metro areas on ways to harness its potential.

Tackling New Jersey’s Water Woes: What’s Next

June 20, 2014
8:30 amto2:00 pm

This NJ Spotlight Conference will focus on issues facing the state’s water systems: how to cope with an aging infrastructure for delivering clean water to residents and businesses; how to make much-needed improvements to the hundreds of wastewater treatment plants discharging into the state’s waterways; and how to recognize and address the broader forces that can affect the future of New Jersey’s clean water supply.

New Jersey’s water systems revealed the extent of their vulnerability during Hurricane Sandy, suffering $2.6 billion in damage. But even before the superstorm, the needs were daunting. A blue-ribbon panel last year recommended that New Jersey invest $44 billion over the next five years to address problems with its water infrastructure.

In addition to two panel discussions featuring government officials, environmental advocates and experts, a keynote address will be delivered by Daniel Van Abs, an associate professor at Rutgers University and lead investigator of a recent report on the state of water infrastructure in New Jersey.

Location: Wyndham Garden Hotel, Trenton
