Delaware - Global Innovation Hub

2:00 PM - 2:15 PM, Tuesday, June 4, 2019 ・ Theater 4
In 2018, Delaware ranked 7th in the Milken Institute’s 2018 State Technology and Science Index, which evaluates each state based on its science and technology ecosystem. Delaware’s biosciences industry is particularly robust, as pharma, agricultural, chemical, and medical device and diagnostics companies combine with the state’s universities and research institutes to move cutting-edge technology from lab to market. Many leading pharmaceutical companies are headquartered in the region, where firms collaborate with research and medical institutions to develop and commercialize innovative drugs, diagnostics, and medical devices. This cluster offers a competitive advantage for companies locating here, helping spur productivity, rapid innovation, and new business formation and providing companies with an existing pool of specialized workers.
