Denver Best Practices Trip

May 05,2016 | By Cara Rene, VP of Stakeholder Relations

In late April, more than 80 delegates from our region visited metro Denver for a best practices trip to learn how the region is thriving and addressing challenges in economic development including transportation, housing, employment, education and health science and tech innovation.

Highlights included visiting labs in the biotech park at the University of Colorado Denver Anschutz Medical Campus - where innovations such as Sharklet antibacterial plastic coatings are coming to fruition and where the Department of Defense is working with researchers on mitigating serious head injuries for soldiers in the field.In addition, the delegation learned about transit-oriented development projects that have improved opportunities for low-income residents.
