MIT EVP Israel Ruiz about the Atlas of Innovation Districts

“MIT is intensely interested in supporting the evolution of Kendall Square, which is being transformed into an urban, mixed-use district with a focus on strengthening community interaction and the area’s innovation ecosystem. We welcome academic studies and methodologies that help us to better inform strategic decisions that accelerate innovation. More than a century after physically moving MIT’s campus to Cambridge, the Kendall development project allows us to create a destination and talent magnet – an environment where people can live, work and play, unleashing a new era of groundbreaking discovery and economic growth across the region. I can imagine Kendall Square a decade from now, with the expanded capacity making it possible to realize an amplified innovation playground anchored on and around MIT.”
