The Rhode Island Office of Innovation works to accelerate innovation in Rhode Island by redesigning government to be more efficient and responsive to citizens’ needs. Rhode Island has the potential to become the innovation hub for New England and a model for the rest of the country. Through partnerships with research institutions, government, and public/private sector entities, and capitalizing on Rhode Island’s unique size and geographic location, there is ample opportunity to accelerate innovation in education, government, technology, and other sectors. The Rhode Island Office of Innovation (InnovateRI) was formed to function as the catalyst for this process. InnovateRI relies on strategic public-private partnerships to accelerate innovation and develop an innovation agenda for the state. By breaking down traditional silos, cultivating partnerships and leveraging resources, InnovateRI serves as an aggregator, bringing together diverse stakeholders engaged in similar projects for maximum impact.
