Lear Innovation Center


Jeff is working with The Lear Corporation to establish Lear as an economic engine and innovation leader in Metro Detroit. To achieve this goal, Lear is working towards establishing a world-class collaborative innovation hub and a growing ecosystem.

The innovation hub will connect the commercial, academic, cultural, and civic communities of Metro Detroit. Members of these communities will function as an integrated community of innovation practitioners. This community’s focus is to develop and sustain the culture and competency necessary to make innovation happen.

To take the first step in establishing an innovation community, Lear is holding an Open Innovation Challenge with training provided by Jeff, which will bring together students of 3 universities, multiple disciplines, and different education levels.
