UAlbany NanoCollege recognized at celebration of research and innovation in New York state: CNSE cited for establishing New York as a leader in nanotechnology

Albany, NY | Posted on May 26th, 2011

The reception recognized SUNY's contribution to research and innovation across regions and communities of all sizes and demographics, covering projects and disciplines that range from nanotechnology, biotechnology, business start-ups, clean energy, entrepreneurship, manufacturing, productivity, community vitality, fashion, agriculture and training.

In being recognized for establishing New York as a leader in nanotechnology, the UAlbany NanoCollege was described as "perhaps the single most successful example of university-led economic development, job growth and high-tech discovery rolled into one. CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex has spurred the development of research centers, curriculum offerings, alliances and new jobs across the state. Its impact spans the state from the Adirondacks to New York City and from Albany and Syracuse to Rochester."

"A great story is unfolding across SUNY's 64 campuses," said SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher. "It's a story of creativity and bold thinking. It's the story of the kind of innovation that is saving lives, creating jobs for tomorrow's workplaces, and laying the foundation for New York as an economic leader for a challenging new century. Faculty and students at SUNY campuses statewide are charting our future."

"We're proud to have the opportunity to highlight SUNY's incredible resource base and proven ability to make a difference in New York State," said Ellis Rubenstein, President and CEO of the New York Academy of Sciences. "Each of the success stories recognized today is testimony to the tremendous assets that SUNY brings to communities across the state."

"The breadth and impact of SUNY research and innovation is clear," said Bonny G. Boice, Executive Vice President of the Research Foundation. "We are committed to supporting these and other achievements that have a profound effect on our state and our lives."

"On behalf of the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, we are delighted to be recognized for our efforts in building a world-class nanotechnology research and innovation ecosystem in New York State," said Dr. Robert Geer, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Chief Academic Officer at CNSE. "Catalyzed by a pioneering public-private partnership that has engaged government, industry and academia, the UAlbany NanoCollege is home to a groundbreaking educational paradigm and unparalleled technology infrastructure that are enabling high-tech economic growth to benefit residents across New York."
