Crowd of More Than One Thousand Attends Inaugural Community Day at UAlbany NanoCollege

Albany, NY | Posted on April 5th, 2008

More than a thousand children, adults and families throughout Tech Valley received an up-close look at the exciting world of nanotechnology when the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering ("CNSE") of the University at Albany held its inaugural Community Day today at CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex.

The first-ever event was part of "NEXSTEP," or "Nanotechnology Explorations for Science, Training and Education Promotion," spearheaded by CNSE's NanoEconomics Constellation in partnership with KeyBank. NEXSTEP is a collaborative program that includes educational initiatives designed to promote greater understanding of the region's changing economic and business environment driven by nanotechnology, with a special emphasis on children, citizens and community.

CNSE's Community Day featured presentations, booths and interactive demonstrations highlighting the exciting technological breakthroughs being enabled by nanotechnology, including those in the fields of health care, energy, environment, electronics and economics; tours of the cutting-edge cleanroom facilities at CNSE's $4.2 billion Albany NanoTech, the most advanced research complex in the academic world; and, a chance for children and adults to participate in hands-on activities that provided greater understanding of the science described by the National Nanotechnology Initiative as "leading to the next Industrial Revolution."

"There's an exciting change occurring in our community, brought about by nanotechnology, through the leadership of the UAlbany NanoCollege, " said Jeff Stone, President, KeyBank Capital Region. "This Community Day is a critical component of KeyBank's support of the NEXSTEP initiative in educating our community about the world of nanotechnology and its impact as an economic force."

"We are delighted to offer individuals in our community and region a firsthand look at the UAlbany NanoCollege, which is recognized worldwide as a leader in nanotechnology education, innovation and commercialization," said Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer of CNSE. "This event, created as part of the NEXSTEP program in collaboration with our forward-thinking KeyBank partners, provides a unique opportunity to demonstrate the exciting possibilities being enabled by nanotechnology, and to showcase the pioneering educational and technological capabilities that are positioning Albany and New York State as global leaders in the most important scientific field of the 21st century."

CNSE's Community Day was planned in conjunction with the national celebration of NanoDays, a week of community-based educational outreach events being held March 29-April 6 to raise public awareness of nanoscale science and engineering.

About UAlbany CNSE
The UAlbany CNSE is the first college in the world dedicated to research, development, education, and deployment in the emerging disciplines of nanoscience, nanoengineering, nanobioscience, and nanoeconomics. In May 2007, it was ranked as the world's number one college for nanotechnology and microtechnology in the Annual College Ranking by Small Times magazine. CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex is the most advanced research enterprise of its kind at any university in the world: a $4.2 billion, 450,000-square-foot complex that attracts corporate partners from around the world and offers students a one-of-a-kind academic experience. The UAlbany NanoCollege houses the only fully-integrated, 300mm wafer, computer chip pilot prototyping and demonstration line within 65,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms. More than 2,000 scientists, researchers, engineers, students, and faculty work on site at CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex, from companies including IBM, AMD, SEMATECH, Toshiba, ASML, Applied Materials, Tokyo Electron, Vistec Lithography and Freescale. An expansion currently underway will increase the size of CNSE's Albany NanoTech complex to over 800,000 square feet, including over 80,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanroom space, to house over 2,500 scientists, researchers, engineers, students, and faculty by mid-2009.
