SUNY CNSE Expands its Popular 'NANOvember' Series of Events to Feature Statewide Community Outreach and Educational Activities

Albany, NY | Posted on October 22nd, 2013

In accordance with Governor Andrew Cuomo's high-tech growth strategy that is making New York the global hub for the nanotechnology industry, the SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) today unveiled plans for its sixth annual celebration of NANOvember, highlighted by an unmatched statewide outreach effort that will share the fascinating world of nanoscale education and research - as well as its significant educational and economic impact and opportunity - with thousands of New Yorkers in locations across the state.

"Showcasing the success of Governor Andrew Cuomo's groundbreaking public-private innovation strategy that is driving unparalleled growth in New York's high-tech economy, SUNY CNSE is thrilled to invite New Yorkers from across the state to learn about the vast potential of this exciting 21st century scientific field," said Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, Senior Vice President and CEO of CNSE. "The engaging events and activities taking place at multiple locations across New York will inspire people of all ages while illustrating the Governor's vision and leadership that have made the Empire State the center of the global nanotechnology industry."

NANOvember will begin with CNSE Community Day on Saturday, November 2, which for the first time will feature Open House programs in three CNSE locations. In Albany, visitors at CNSE's Albany NanoTech Complex will experience hands-on activities, engaging demonstrations, and guided tours of NanoFab Xtension (NFX), headquarters of the Global 450mm Consortium (G450C). In Utica, participants will tour the CNSE-SUNYIT Computer Chip Commercialization Center (Quad-C) under construction at SUNYIT, part of Governor Cuomo's ‘Nano Utica' initiative, and learn about efforts to develop the Marcy Nanocenter site. And, CNSE's Smart System Technology and Commercialization Center of Excellence (STC) in Rochester will demonstrate its cutting-edge MEMS capabilities through displays, facility tours, interactive presentations, and hands-on children's activities.

A number of new events will take place throughout NANOvember, including:

· November 7 - "Statewide Nano Impact," a panel discussion featuring leaders from the Office of Governor Andrew Cuomo, CNSE, and CNSE partner locations in Utica, Rochester and Buffalo;

· November 9 - "NanOlympics," where attendees will learn about the role nanotechnology will play at the 2014 Winter Olympics and test nano-enabled sports equipment;

· November 14 - "Nano Job Fair" at the CNSE Photovoltaic Manufacturing and Technology Development Facility (CNSE MDF) in Rochester, held in partnership with the Office of Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York State Department of Labor, to help fill more than 150 current and future openings;

· November 16 - "Kiernan Kids Day," in which CNSE will partner with Girls Inc. of the Greater Capital Region, Trinity Alliance of the Capital Region, Boys and Girls Clubs of Albany and Troy, and Boy Scouts of America to introduce youngsters to the exciting world of nanotechnology; and

· November 23 - "Nano Family Fun Day" at the CNSE Children's Museum of Science and Technology (CNSE CMOST), which will feature nanotechnology exhibits for children, the chance to dress up in a cleanroom "bunny suit," and other family-based, hands-on activities.

In addition, the popular CNSE Community Lecture Series will return on consecutive Monday nights, beginning with presentations by CNSE student entrepreneurs who will showcase their nanotechnology-based startup companies on November 4; Dr. Fatemah (Shadi) Shahedipour-Sandvik, CNSE Associate Professor of NanoEngineering and Research Foundation Presidential Fellow, who will discuss advances in LED lighting and other clean energy technologies on November 11; Dr. Mohamed Trebak, CNSE Associate Professor of Nanobioscience, who will outline CNSE's latest nanobiomedical research to enable improved therapies for the treatment of cardiovascular disease on November 18; and Dr. Alain Kaloyeros, CNSE Senior Vice President and CEO, who will discuss nanotechnology's increasing societal impact as well as the global leadership of CNSE and New York State under Governor Andrew Cuomo on November 25.

About SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE)
The SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) is the first college in the world dedicated to education, research, development, and deployment in the emerging disciplines of nanoscience, nanoengineering, nanobioscience, and nanoeconomics. With more than $17 billion in high-tech investments, CNSE represents the world’s most advanced university-driven research enterprise, offering students a one-of-a-kind academic experience and providing over 300 corporate partners with access to an unmatched ecosystem for leading-edge R&D and commercialization of nanoelectronics and nanotechnology innovations. CNSE’s footprint spans upstate New York, including its Albany NanoTech Complex, a 1.3 million-square-foot megaplex with the only fully-integrated, 300mm and 450mm wafer computer chip pilot prototyping and demonstration lines within 135,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms. More than 3,100 scientists, researchers, engineers, students, and faculty work here, from companies including IBM, Intel, GlobalFoundries, SEMATECH, Samsung, TSMC, Applied Materials, Tokyo Electron, ASML, and Lam Research. CNSE’s latest expansion, which includes NanoFab Xtension (NFX), headquarters for the world’s first Global 450mm Consortium (G450C), and the Zero Energy Nanotechnology (ZEN) building, a living laboratory for green energy technologies, will add more than 1,000 scientists, researchers, and engineers from CNSE and global corporations. CNSE Kiernan Plaza in downtown Albany is home to CNSE's Smart Cities Technology Innovation Center (SCiTI). CNSE’s Solar Energy Development Center in Halfmoon, which provides a prototyping and demonstration line for next-generation CIGS thin-film solar cells, and the CNSE Photovoltaic Manufacturing and Technology Development Facility (CNSE MDF) in Rochester, the solar industry’s first full-service collaborative facility dedicated to crystalline silicon, support CNSE’s leadership of the U.S. Photovoltaic Manufacturing Consortium (PVMC). CNSE’s Smart System Technology and Commercialization Center of Excellence (STC) in Rochester offers state-of-the-art capabilities for MEMS fabrication and packaging. CNSE also co-founded and manages operations at the Computer Chip Commercialization Center (QUAD-C) at SUNYIT and is lead developer of the Marcy Nanocenter site in Utica, and is partnering with AMRI and the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus to develop the Medical Innovation and Commercialization Hub in Buffalo.
