Abstract

Corner Brook is in transition, moving the focus of economic development to the knowledge-based economy to develop a more vibrant, diversified and healthy city. This shift requires more action oriented activities, greater collaboration between university, government and business, greater communication across groups and by building and supporting innovation networks and external connections. Innovation is grounded in networks. The focus of this project is to is to assess the rural innovation system (adapted cluster work for rural and small regions) in the city of Corner Brook. Using interviews and surveys to investigate who people talk to and work with, the study will map out the connections and networks and to use that information to bring these players together to further develop social and economic innovation in our city and region.
