Boston science jobs are among the top in the nation, but the area is working hard to keep that title.
The Milken Institute recently released a study that found the Boston area is the number one region in the country for life sciences. However, other regions are beginning to catch up. So what are the City of Boston and the State of Massachusetts doing to keep their lead?
In 2008, Gov. Deval Patrick and other officials created the Massachusetts Life Sciences Initiative. The initiative is a 10-year, $1 billion package of investments and incentives that was designed to strengthen the state’s role in the life sciences industry and help the economy, according to an article by The Boston Globe.
