Regional Competitiveness and Coordination


To explore collaborative efforts among a variety of stakeholders to solve common challenges and elevate regional quality of life and standard of living.



One purpose of this specialty research is to present compelling data, case studies and recommendations on regional approaches to public services, public safety, health and social services, workforce development, planning and development among others. Another objective is to share that information with stakeholders with the influence to advance collaborative solutions. Finally, it is intended to serve as a convenor for those who wish to pursue implementation of collaborative solutions.
