1. About Knowledge Corridor

    Knowledge Corridor

    The Hartford-Springfield Economic Partnership constitutes an economic and cultural partnership between the Connecticut River cities of Springfield Massachusetts, Hartford, Connecticut, and surrounding towns. Formalized by business and education leaders in 2000, the partnership seeks to engender economic and cultural opportunities for New England's second most populous region, of 1.7 million residents and 110,000 college students. The Hartford-Springfield area hosts over 26 colleges and universities, and thus received the moniker Knowledge Corridor from regional boosters.
