I am pleased to welcome you to the website for the National Strategic Planning & Analysis Research Center. I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself and highlight all nSPARC has to offer.
Dr. Domenico "Mimmo" Parisi

Discovering real-world solutions for everyday problems has always driven my work as a scientist and practitioner. I have strived to align university, government, and industry expertise and resources to give communities a better opportunity to act locally to compete globally. This is something I believe is increasingly important in the growing knowledge-based economy. It is the very foundation of the work we conduct at nSPARC.

There is so much information available at the touch of a button that distilling relevant knowledge in a timely manner is an ever-growing challenge. This is where nSPARC excels. Combining state-of-the-art technology and analytical procedures with solid old-fashioned teamwork, we contextualize information to produce customized and practical solutions for real-world problems.

I believe more strongly than ever in the role the university plays in making a difference in people's lives. I am very proud of the work conducted at nSPARC and its national recognition for designing science-based strategies with practical applications for economic, workforce, and community planning and development.

I invite you to browse our Web site and see the many ways we carry out our mission. Please do not hesitate to contact me, or any member of nSPARC, if you have any questions or want to learn more about what we do.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

- Domenico "Mimmo" Parisi
