Generating Bold Ideas for Massachusetts’ Future

Massachusetts is home to world-class higher education and research institutions, renowned hospitals and health care systems, thriving start-ups and business enterprises, and pioneers across the innovation ecosystem. In order to maintain our leadership position and seize the opportunities that lie ahead, leaders from industry, finance, academia, and government must work together now to understand what the future holds and how we can leverage the Commonwealth’s resources to tackle global challenges.

MassVision2050 (Mass2050) is a sustained, multi-year collaboration between private, public, and academic leaders to generate bold ideas for Massachusetts’ future. With support from Knowledge Partner McKinsey & Company, this new initiative is designed to place Massachusetts at the forefront of the global dialogue on new technologies and their societal impact. Our goal is to select the most important trends in technology, determine their implications for Massachusetts and global challenges, and publish the results focusing on strategies that support the key sectors likely to drive employment and economic growth in Massachusetts in the coming decades.

MassVision2050 2022-2023 Agenda

There will be a series of discussions with thought leaders on topics that will be critical to the success of Massachusetts in the next 20-30 years, including:

Artificial Intelligence

Clean Energy and Clean Technology



Health Technology

Life Science Innovation


Supply Chain Enhancement

Transportation Technology and Advanced Mobility


As a centerpiece of the Council’s work, Mass2050 will help guide and shape policy decisions by providing solutions that create life-changing opportunities for residents while ensuring all Bay Staters thrive as emerging technologies enhance existing industries, drive new ones, and spur investment and growth.

Upcoming Programs & Events

Blue Tech & Climate Resilience

Join us on Tuesday, April 12 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET for a critical conversation on the global climate crisis with experts from MHTC Members Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), McKinsey & Company, and The MITRE Corporation during the first Mass2050 program, Blue Tech & Climate Resilience. 

The virtual event will explore the role that Massachusetts can play in pioneering climate change solutions through collaborations like the Ocean & Climate Innovation Accelerator (OCIA). Launched by ADI and WHOI, OCIA is a first-of-its-kind consortium focused on advancing knowledge of the ocean’s critical role as a defense against a warming planet by bringing together industry, academia, and philanthropy. Attendees will also learn about MITRE’s BlueTech Lab, a state-of-the-art, all-weather maritime test facility and collaborative laboratory for innovators and researchers to advance marine technology, strengthen climate resilience, and increase national security and safety.

RSVP now to take a deeper dive into the topic and discover how assets like OCIA and the BlueTech Lab can help Massachusetts become a clean tech powerhouse to help meet the state’s goal of net zero emissions by 2050, while inspiring others to do the same.
