Welcome to the Alward Institute Blog

Welcome to the Alward Institute blog! Our economists and researchers will use this space to share periodic updates about our latest research projects, regional economies, market trends, and economic development, analytics, and models. Our blog posts are meant to be conversational, so please feel free to share comments, ideas, and questions plus suggest ideas for future blog posts.


The Alward Institute for Collaborative Science is a 501(c)(3) non-profit institution with a mission to partner with business, government and academia in order to further research and education in regional science. Some of our current projects include measuring the economic impact of the EB-5 immigration program, estimating the value of local food systems, understanding the structure and function of regional economies, uncovering potential bottlenecks in regional supply chains, improving algorithms to estimate commodity trade flows, and much more.


We are excited to share information about these and other projects through this new site. We plan to update our blog regularly. Please check back soon to see our first research post.
