The state will invest $28 million to turn a former General Electric Co. laboratory in Salina into a nanotechnology research and development facility projected to employ up to 250 people. . . .
Last year, the state announced plans to create a business incubator and technology accelerator at State University Institute of Technology in Utica in partnership with Albany’s NanoTech center.In July 2009 the Utica (SUNYIT) facilities were announced . Per the OD:
An important component of the new facility at SUNYIT would be a 10,000-square-foot space called a clean room.Perhaps the Syracuse and Utica facilities have entirely different missions . . . but perhaps not.
The room, which would have the proper environment for scientists to research and make tools needed by nanochip manufacturers, would be the only one of its kind west of the Hudson Valley, Silver said.
We have become somewhat jaded in the Mohawk Valley with New York State announcements. More information is needed here.
