Each year, IEI focuses on a specific emerging issue threatening North Carolina’s future competitiveness. An emerging issue is something we haven’t thought about, but need to, or it’s something we already know, but is changing. The Institute for Emerging Issues works collaboratively to mine these emerging issues for their opportunities. After all, North Carolina’s history is built on people responding to new opportunities.
Emerging issues cross the four building blocks of a vibrant North Carolina: economy, health, education and natural and built environments. We assemble diverse perspectives to reflect the varied interests of the state as we address the topic to ensure that the solutions we derive together are smarter, more comprehensive, and endure.
