The Northeast Massachusetts Innovation Economy and Workforce Landscape

Identifying opportunities to leverage regional industry and better engage underutilized and underrepresented workers

The MassTech Collaborative (MassTech), the Essex County Community Foundation (ECCF), and the North Shore Technology Council (NSTC) commissioned the UMass Donahue Institute to conduct a study of the Northeast Massachusetts innovation economy with a particular focus on the workforce. The NSTC identified the need for an in-depth analysis of the region’s innovation economy and workforce situation to inform strategies to move the region forward in the coming years. MassTech and the ECCF agreed to provide the support that made this study possible. Masstech in particular played a key role in overseeing the project and securing input from a diverse advisory committee. The study utilized local expertise by tapping into the insights of workforce groups, higher education institutions, non-profit groups, and many area businesses through a series of interactions and interviews.
