Eye On Boise

Virginia Tech prof to speak on Boise tech

Heike Mayer, a professor of urban affairs and planning at Virginia Tech’s Alexandria Center, will speak in Boise on Monday on what makes Boise unique among other growing technology centers. That includes how Boise’s high-tech business sector has grown and driven the local university to expand its high-tech offerings, instead of the usual pattern – where a major research university draws and prompts the development of the high-tech cluster in the first place. Why are we different? Find out when she speaks at 1 p.m. Monday in the first-floor conference room of the J.R. Williams Building, 700 W. State St. in Boise (also known as the Hall of Mirrors). Mayer is in the midst of a research project for the National Governors Association on emerging tech regions. For more info or to RSVP for the free lecture, call Kent Neupert at Boise State University, 426-2397. The talk is sponsored by the Idaho Office of Science & Technology and the Boise Valley Economic Partnership.
