Civic Chat — Networking Our Neighborhoods: Mark Harris, President and CEO, The Illinois Science and Technology Coalition

| MSFT Chicago Staff

We’re proud members of The Illinois Science and Technology Coalition (ISTC), a member-driven nonprofit that harnesses the power of research and innovation to expand and enrich the state’s economy.

The ISTC releases three Illinois Innovation Indexes per year, focusing on R&D, University Innovation, and STEM talent respectively. The comprehensive reports provide an overview and analysis on technology-based economic activity in Illinois while also acting as a data archive to track and benchmark the innovation economy in Illinois.

In Shelley Stern Grach’s latest Civic Chat: Networking our Neighborhoods, she sits down with Mark Harris, the President and CEO of The Illinois Science and Technology Coalition, to explore these Innovation Indexes and detail how ISTC is helping drive innovation forward in Illinois.
