Economic Development: Impact Assessment and Evaluation

SRI's Center for Science, Technology, and Economic Development provides balanced and objective evaluations of how well a program or policy is meeting its goals. Researchers also define and measure the economic size and impact of programs and industries, and the return on investment of economic and technology programs.

Reports prepared by the center's researchers help clients communicate the impact of their programs to technical and lay audiences, and make objective, data-driven decisions on future program directions.
