Home > Press > Unprecedented Crowd of More than 3,000 People Attend CNSE Community Day Activities Across New York State: CNSE’s signature ‘NANOvember’ celebration showcases New York’s growing high-tech sector during first-ever statewide open house events in Albany, Utica and Rochester

Abstract:
Reflecting growing interest and enthusiasm for Governor Andrew Cuomo's innovative strategy that is driving nanotechnology-enabled educational and career opportunities across New York State, a record crowd of more than 3,000 people attended Community Day events at three SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) locations across the state, marking the official start of CNSE's sixth annual community outreach initiative known as "NANOvember."

Unprecedented Crowd of More than 3,000 People Attend CNSE Community Day Activities Across New York State: CNSE’s signature ‘NANOvember’ celebration showcases New York’s growing high-tech sector during first-ever statewide open house events in Albany, Utica and Rochester

Albany, NY | Posted on November 2nd, 2013

"The incredible turnout for CNSE's first-ever statewide Community Day is further testament to Governor Andrew Cuomo's pioneering leadership, which is propelling the state's economy forward through the creation of an unmatched ecosystem for nanotechnology education, workforce training, and economic development," said Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, Senior Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of CNSE. "It is exciting to see the emerging field of nanoscale science capture the imagination of so many New Yorkers, and we are delighted to demonstrate the myriad of educational and career opportunities being created through Governor Cuomo's nanotechnology-based high-tech corridor."

At CNSE's world-class Albany NanoTech Complex, Community Day featured guided tours of the newly built NanoFab Xtension (NFX), headquarters for the Global 450mm Consortium (G450C), which is leading the world in the development of next-generation computer chips. In Utica, visitors toured the CNSE-SUNYIT Computer Chip Commercialization Center (Quad-C) now under construction on the SUNYIT campus, an integral part of Governor Cuomo's recent $1.5 billion ‘Nano Utica' announcement. And, CNSE's STC in Rochester offered tours, presentations and activities showcasing its cutting-edge capabilities in sensor and system-on-a-chip technologies.

Community Day is the kickoff to CNSE's signature celebration of "NANOvember," which is designed to demonstrate the exciting world of nanotechnology and the recognized global leadership of CNSE and New York State.

The schedule for NANOvember includes a "Statewide Nano Impact" panel discussion on November 7 featuring leaders from the Office of Governor Andrew Cuomo, CNSE and its partners, who will highlight the economic impact of New York's nanotechnology sector; "NANOlympics" on November 9, where attendees can learn about the role of nanotechnology at the 2014 Winter Olympics and test nanotechnology-enabled sports equipment; a "Nano Job Fair" on November 14 in Rochester to help fill more than 150 current and future openings at CNSE; and two events targeting children and families, "Kiernan Kids Day" on November 16 and "Nano Family Fun Day" on November 23 at the CNSE Children's Museum of Science and Technology (CNSE CMOST).

The CNSE Community Lecture Series will also return on four consecutive Monday nights beginning November 4, with presentations detailing cutting-edge research leading to the creation of CNSE student-run startup companies; nanotechnology's impact in addressing society's most pressing challenges, including advancements in LED lighting and new therapies for the treatment of cardiovascular disease; and the global leadership of CNSE and New York State under Governor Andrew Cuomo in advancing the science that is "leading to the next Industrial Revolution."

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.
