Broad-based Strategy

An industry-led regional strategy (see Regional Innovation Cluster Strategic Action Plan) to position the greater East Bay as a leading center in the clean energy and water technology sectors was developed over a 12-month period. The plan is based on the region’s unparalleled assets and evolved with input from cluster participants. The Diablo Innovation Alliance strategy was launched on June 29, 2011 (see News & Events).

To promote cluster growth, our regional innovation cluster strategy focuses on

  • research and innovation;
  • entrepreneurship and investment;
  • talent and workforce development; 
  • manufacturing and infrastructure; and
  • market transportation and expansion.
