“Community Innovation in Lowell” Meeting – April 26, 2011

Received this information from Professor Bill Berkowitz, Dept. of Psychology at UMass/Lowell:

We thought readers of the Richard Howe blog and friends would be interested in an upcoming meeting on Community Innovation in Lowell, to be held on Tuesday, April 26, from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. in Coburn Hall, Room 205, on UMass/Lowell’s South Campus (corner of Broadway and Wilder).

Given the fiscal outlook in Lowell and beyond, innovative ideas will be more important than ever to help maintain our community quality of life. This event is designed to build upon the successful Innovative Cities conference held in the city last June, and to take some next steps toward making innovation a part of Lowell’s civic culture.

At the meeting we will both hear about innovative work that participants are engaging in, and talk about how we might move toward establishing Lowell as a model Innovation City.

All community members are welcome. Since space is limited, though, we would be grateful to receive an RSVP, which can be sent to Prof. Bill Berkowitz of the Psychology Department at Bill_Berkowitz@uml.edu.
