Through the vision of many community partners: Purdue Polytechnic Institute, the Flagship Business Enterprise Center, the City of Anderson, and several private partnerships, the P3 is now a nexus of industry, academia, and government economic activities. The merging of these Industry partners attracts and facilitates success by developing intellectual property, contributing to developed markets, and creating end-user products. Simultaneously, university and college participants integrate industrial projects into the academic curriculum through hands-on training that is immediately relevant outside the classroom. Because of the project’s intentional partnerships, program planning and alchemy of education and industry, an educated skilled labor force will emerge and contribute to the economic vitality of Anderson and East Central Indiana.
