Human capital is a critical resource in advanced technology. The ability of a region to compete on a global scale is dependent on a highly skilled labor supply. Innovation networks are a "force multiplier" for converting technical expertise into enterprise value. We can identify and quantify innovation networks using graph theory.

In this session, we'll use patent analytics to evaluate collaborative innovation in the U.S. med tech / biotech space from a regional perspective. Regional planners and economic developers can use this perspective to promote and improve regional competitiveness. Corporate planners and leaders can apply this perspective at the enterprise level to improve performance and increase enterprise value.

As a related concept, we'll explore the relevance of this approach for the Amazon site search that is currently challenging regional planners across the continent to differentiate the potential value of their locations.
