              what Georgia is doing regarding
              what I have said so far, and how.
The Maritime Logistics Innovation Center
(MLIC) is a unique partnership of private
industry, academia, Federal and state
authorities.
This partnership works together to develop,
apply and promote new technologies,
identify unique applications for existing
technology, and create best practices for
safe, efficient and secure supply chains.
“Centers of Innovation bring together
research and local assets in midsized
Georgia cities to attract company interest
and technology-based economic
development.”
                 Governor Sonny Perdue
“We look forward to our members
achieving the commercialization and

        consequence of a single
        moment of brilliance.
Innovation:
The act of introducing something new

        Rather, it is the fruit of an
        integrative approach - the
        melding of strategy, marketing,
        production, research and
        finance.
