R&D Resources

Long recognized as the birthplace of technology and innovation, New York ranks among the world's most sophisticated locations for technology-driven research and commercialization. New York's enduring legacy is at the cutting-edge of today's most commercially-promising technologies. New York is home to 113 higher education institutions. These include some of the finest colleges and universities in the world, including University at Albany College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), Union College, Cornell University , University of Rochester, Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), University at Buffalo, Syracuse University, Clarkson University, and Colgate University to name a few. The Capital Region alone is home to 21 colleges and universities awarding 18,000 degrees annually, over half in technical fields. New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) can also assist in the funding and development of projects focused on energy consumption, development of renewable resources, and advancement of innovative technologies.

TEC-SMART (Training and Education Center for Semiconductor Manufacturing and Alternative and Renewable Technologies) will be a state-of-the-art education facility in Malta that will allow Hudson Valley Community College to train the 500 to 600 technicians the Capital Region’s growing Tech Valley is expected to need over the next five to 10 years.
