What is an "Innovation Hub?"
Example of "Investing in Science"
The BioMedical and Tech companies, financial companies, and global universities (Harvard, MIT) in the close proximity of Boston and Cambridge make up our state's "Innovation Hub." A recent "breakthrough" in our state's Hub was capturing the first picture of a Black Hole at the NASA X-ray telescope in Cambridge.
Let's Invest in Science in MA
Think Big: What's Next?
Our Next Foreseeable Threats,
From Diseases to Climate Change
An additional benefit, is that Innovation Hubs:
We grow our Innovation Hub into Central MA by:
Robotics, Communications, and Material Sciences
An "Innovation Hub" is a collection of institutions, like scientific R&D institutions and Universities, in a close regional proximity that accelerate the rate of scientific breakthroughs.
Get Serious: Understanding Our Strategy for Solutions: Investing in
Food, Water, Energy, and Information
1. Building a Bullet Train from Boston to Central MA.
Video: Over the Past 40 years, we have continually increased military spending, and decreased Science spending - and we're seeing the results: Our country has a declining economy that's not equipped for natural threats. We fix this problem with investments in Science that: grow our economy and keep us safe.
Investments in Science:
To Respond on a State Level, we should:
We Should Also Grow Our Innovation Hub in MA
Viruses are just some of the threats we have to be concerned about now as we move into the future. Here are a few more, including climate change, economic decline, and more.
Invest in Science
To Respond on a National Level:
Our Federal Government needs to direct billions of dollars to States and R&D institutions that can produce the scientific breakthroughs our country needs to stay safe and secure.
Directing Federal and Private Investments:
Money to Help, Not to Hurt.
Let's "Invest in Sustainable Infrastructure Systems for Food, Water, Energy, and Information" Here's a video describing what that means.
2. Laying the Foundational Infrastructure for economic growth and population growth in Central MA.
The Human Genome Project was a multi- billion dollar, federally funded mission to map the entire human gene structure (DNA). Research teams from around the world (including from MIT and Harvard) worked together and completed the task in 13 years, and their work has laid the foundation for countless medical advances that save thousands of lives everyday (and add billions of dollars to our national economy).
These projects will:
Food Science and Agricultural Innovation
Viruses, Bacteria, Vaccines, and Microbial Sciences

Sectors of Science that our country and state should focus our Investments include:
Mostly all of our problems (like disease, food security, and energy) are all science based issues that need science based answers.
