Building and expanding existing regional university partnerships is one way to span the jurisdictions without waiting for politically difficult new regional economic development programs to launch. For example, the National Science Foundation-funded D.C. i-CORPS program is a regional effort, using national best practices, to expedite tech transfer from regional universities and federal labs. We have a lot of research spending in the area but not enough commercialization, and i-CORPS is nationally recognized as a solution. Participants include UM, Virginia Tech, George Washington University and JHU. But the federal funding limits i-CORPS' scale. What about having the three jurisdictions kick in extra funding to expand this program to more companies, universities and federal labs, which would lead to regional growth?
