About the series:

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), Lockheed Martin, and Washington State University Tri-Cities (WSU-TC) are teaming to host the speaker series dedicated to educating stakeholders, the community, and other interested individuals and organizations on what it takes to successfully develop a research park. Speakers, experienced in developing research parks across the country, will share their experiences in locating federal funding and investors, recruiting tenants, and collaborating with universities, national laboratories, and industrial interests.

Who's the speaker?

The event's speaker, Phil Singerman, Ph.D., is Senior Vice President of B&D consulting headquartered in Indiana. The fourth speaker in the series, Singerman will talk about federal funding available for development of research parks, including what is available, how to gain access to it, and why it's an important element of success. He will also address the federal economic development funding resources and the economic development implications of carbon cap and trade systems (an administrative approach used to control pollution by providing economic incentives for achieving reductions in the emissions of pollutants).

Singerman is a recognized national innovator in public/private partnerships to promote local economic development. His 30-year career includes positions in the public-local, state, and federal levels-and private sectors. In particular, he served as U.S. Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Economic Development from 1995-1999.
