Overall, reported income was down, slightly ahead of the decrease in reported rersearch expenditures, but that alone does not provide a full picture of economic activity. Despite current conditions, the number of reported start-up companies was slightly higher, as many institutions work with regional development agencies.
The full report will be published in a few months. Highlights are available from AUTM.
