New State Group Meets

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A new Idaho council meant to promote cooperation between government, universities and the private sector is meeting with the director of the Utah group that inspired the effort. The Idaho Global Entrepreneurial Mission’s council plan to meet with Utah Science Technology and Research Initiative director Ted McAleer on Tuesday in Boise. Among items on the agenda is a discussion of how Utah has doled out government grants to private companies to help them succeed. Idaho’s program, known as IGEM, was approved by the 2012 Idaho Legislature and given a $5 million initial cash infusion. That pales in comparison with Utah’s program that’s gotten tens of millions in state support — and hundreds of millions in new university buildings — since 2006. But Idaho says it wants to start more modestly.
