Open Source Economic Development as REALNEO framework
Submitted by Norm Roulet on Thu, 12/30/2004 - 03:07.
This book coordinates deployment the Open Source Economic Development framework within REALNEO. The framework provides a structure for categorizing and managing the many Community Of Interest Links -COILs - of REALNEO. Ed Morrison at the Case Center for Regional Economic Issues developed the framework, and it is distributed under a Creative Commons license.
The Universities Collaborative has adopted this framework for its work in economic development. The Universities Collaborative includes Case, Cleveland State University, Kent State University, Lorain County Community College, The University of Akron, and Youngstown State University. In the coming year, the Collaborative will expand to include other campuses within Northeast Ohio.
In addition, The Blue Ribbon Task Force, established by Commissioner Peter Lawson Jones in Cuyahoga County, has adopted the framework to guide their work in recommending a strategy for Cuyahoga County's economic development investments.
