Investments in technology-based economic development programs have soared during the last few decades, with interest fueled by the emerging economy variously referred to as 'digital,' 'information,' knowledge,' or 'new.' Development organizations at all levels have designed and integrated myriad programs and policies, each designed to capture the most technological benefit for their respective jurisdictions. This book provides a review of the conceptual and practical issues of evaluating technology-based economic development programs. Evaluations are illustrated through a case study of one of the U.S.'s longest-established technology development programs, the Advanced Technology Development Center at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Evaluative approaches include the use of surveys, fiscal impact and cost-benefit analysis.
