How well are you contributing to your region's global competitiveness?
According to the VT KnowledgeWorks Global Partnership, "Cities with strong universities are particularly well-positioned to be among the globally competitive regions as the economy of the 21st century evolves. To do so, they must:
1. pro-actively embrace globalization
2. expand their regional brand recognition by deliberately creating multi-layered global networks, and
3. act in a regionally coherent manner at every opportunity."
