Industry Sector Mapping
Mapping Currently Funded Research Projects at UNR, UNLV and DRI to Targeted Industry Sectors under Nevada’s 2012-14 Plan for Economic Development
In February 2012, the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development released “Moving Nevada Forward: A Plan for Excellence in Economic Development 2012-2014” (State Plan). This dynamic new plan outlines goals and objectives with the stated vision of “A vibrant, innovative, and sustainable economy” and mission of “high-quality jobs for Nevadans.” The State Plan further identifies targeted sectors and specific opportunities and provides the strategies and initiatives that are best expected to capitalize on the State’s existing assets and improve in other areas that require progress. As a key partner in education and a stakeholder in Nevada’s future, the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) is committed to contributing to the achievement of the goals and objectives contained in the State Plan.
