Evaluating R&D Investments in Maine

For some time, EntreWorks Consulting has been part of a team (along with Camoin Associates and Scruggs & Associates) that produces an annual evaluation of the impact of Maine’s state-backed investments in research and development activity.   Maine has long been a leader in supporting rigorous program evaluation, and even in today’s tough budget environment, they continue to support these efforts as a means to assess whether Mainers are obtaining a favorable return on investment for backing key technology sectors and activities.  This year’s effort includes three studies:  the Maine Science and Technology Index, an evaluation of state R&D programs, and a case study analysis that focuses on the importance of middle skills jobs to Maine’s technology economy.  The reports can all be accessed here.
