We welcomed industry and economic development leaders back to our campus November 10 for the Third Annual UT Dallas Economic Development Summit. The Summit’s main theme was economic recovery in North Texas since the height of the pandemic. Speakers representing multiple industries, including Rich Templeton, president and CEO of Texas Instruments and Chris Nielsen, executive vice president of product support and chief quality officer for Toyota Motor North America, shared how their businesses have fared since COVID-19 caused a global recession. They also discussed how North Texas firms can collaborate with UT Dallas to support economic development in North Texas. Read more about the Summit on our website.

We are happy to fulfill customized data requests for our North Texas economic development partners and to connect your organization with resources and contacts at UT Dallas that could lead to mutual economic development partnerships.

Please reach out to F&ED to learn how your organization can partner with UT Dallas.
