The Utah Cluster Acceleration Partnership (UCAP) is a collaboration of leaders from industry, state government, higher education and workforce services to develop a comprehensive strategy to significantly increase the economic impact of Utah’s most important industry clusters. The design of three pilot acceleration strategies have been completed in the following areas; Aerospace and Defense, Energy and Digital Media.
The primary purposes of the Acceleration Strategies are to:
- Develop responsive, industry-driven education and training systems that will provide a skilled talent pipeline to meet both short- and long-term needs of selected industry clusters.
- Develop strategies, partnerships and models that best meet the talent and innovation support needs of Utah’s key industry clusters.
- Leverage the resources and expertise within Utah’s higher education network to accelerate Utah’s industry clusters.
- Identify best practices that can be replicated, sustained, and used by other industry cluster initiatives ongoing.
