Dr. Wessner thanked the National Academies’ partners in the regional innovation initiative for their contributions. Without the “inspiration and encouragement” of colleagues at the Association of University Research Parks, the meeting could not have been held, he said. He also thanked the Department of Energy, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the Economic Development Administration of the Department of Commerce, as well as the Heinz Foundation, IBM, and Dow Corning for their sponsorship.
