The Bayonne Center for Progress is a public policy incubator in Bayonne, New Jersey. Our mission is to undertake research projects that lead to policy discoveries and solutions that may help solve the problems of our city.

What is a policy incubator?

A policy institute is a research institute/center and organization that performs research and advocacy concerning large scale topics such as social policy, political strategy, economics, military strategy, technology, and culture.

A policy incubator essentially performs the same research on a micro-scale. For instance, if there is a flooding problem in a small town, a policy incubator will collect data and study flooding patterns in the last 20 years. The policy incubator will then use that data to try to find solutions for the flooding.
