Last month, the University of Minnesota released a new report outlining its economic impact on the state of Minnesota. Among the report’s findings: the U of M contributes more than $8.6 billion a year in economic activity and supports more than 77,000 jobs across the state. U of M researchers generated $1.2 billion in impact and helped create 18 start-ups.
One section of the report also explores how outreach and engagement efforts at the U help to strengthen Minnesota—and cites CTS as an example. CTS is included in a list of U of M centers that work with a wide range of partners to “advance the socioeconomic vitality of the region and state” through engagement-focused research and outreach.
