Research partnership between universities helps spur growth
for Michigan's economy


from The State News

The University Research Corridor — comprised of MSU, the University of Michigan and Wayne State University — contributes to Michigan's ability to foster job creation, retain graduates and spur competition among other national and worldwide research "clusters," said Jeff Mason, executive director of the URC. The URC is Michigan's top research and academia alliance formed to positively benefit the state. The universities share faculty and research projects, and out of that comes growth. Research topics range from Great Lakes climate studies to stem cells. In the 2010 Empowering Michigan report, the net economic impact to the state of the alliance reached about $14.8 billion — an increase of about 15 percent to $12.9 billion in 2006. more
