Worcester County, a region in Central Massachusetts, has established a series of initiatives to develop a life science cluster. To foster growth of the life science industry in Worcester County, Massachusetts Biomedical Initiatives (MBI), a biotechnology incubator, requested a study to document the current state of the life science economy, and highlight the strengths of the area. The primary objective was to determine the competitive advantage of Worcester County. This was accomplished by analyzing relevant data, which uncovered strengths and weaknesses of the Worcester County life sciences cluster. Finally, suggestions for remediation were offered to MBI to rectify or alleviate the weaknesses uncovered.
