Bigger is not better in nanotechnology, unless you are talking about the size of New York's nanotech industry. The nanosector has been growing steadily since 2004 and now hopes for a quantum leap through use of nanomaterials to boost renewable energy manufacturing cluster in the Hudson Valley.
Established only in 2004, the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering has grown from a faculty roster of three to its current 50 professors overseeing teaching and research in nanoengineering, nanobioscience and nanoeconomics. An investment by state taxpayers that now totals $1 billion has been augmented by private-sector investment of an additional $4 billion and what was once a patch of woods on the campus of SUNY-Albany now has 1 million square feet of space for education, research and development.
"The college is a new paradigm, not just in academic education and training, but how we interact with companies and how we do it internally," said Pradeep Haldar, addressing the Hudson Valley Center for Innovation on Nov. 18 at the seven21 Media Center in Kingston. Haldar is director of the Energy and Environmental Technology Applications Center at the college.
