NY invests in nano-electronics

Sunday, July 29, 2007

New York continues to build its technology base with state investment. $4 million in state funding will be used to help develop the Marcy NanoCenter for the nanoelectronics industry near Syracuse.

The 300-acre site is located at the campus of the state university of New York Institute of Technology, about 100 miles West of Albany, N.Y. and 40 miles from the Syracuse airport. Read more.

New York's innovation strategy is still heavily dependent on state investments in anchor facilities. To be successful, the strategy needs more private sector leverage, which will take time to develop. Advanced Micro Devices selected New York for a new computer microchip manufacturing plant, but the firm has yet to commit to the project.
