Innovation Indexed

Massachusetts and Connecticut lead America in college-educated or “innovation economy” workers, according to the latest annual index of “The Massachusetts Innovation Economy, published by the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative.

Among “areas for Massachusetts to focus on,” however, the report cites disparities in public funding for education, especially higher education. The index notes that the Commonwealth spends $1,184 less per full-time student than the national average and $1,375 less per student than the average of the “leading technology states” whose economies have significant concentration and size in the 11 key sectors that make up the “Innovation Economy” in Massachusetts.

More than 15 years ago, NEJHE (then called Connection) published an article on the inaugural Massachusetts Innovation Economy Index.
