Development of New Innovations, NYS Centers of Advanced Technology

In FY 2015-16, companies working with the 15 Centers for Advanced Technology (CATs) supported by Empire State Development’s Division of Science, Technology & Innovation (NYSTAR) increased their revenue by a combined $151 million, created 734 full-time jobs, and recorded cost savings of $48 million.
The CAT program encourages collaboration between private industry and universities in the development and application of new technologies. By taking advantage of the program, entrepreneurs and established businesses have access to research expertise, advanced equipment, and product development support through the state’s top academic institutions.
Each CAT serves a unique purpose, and one example is the Center for Additive Manufacturing and Multifunctional Printing at Rochester Institute of Technology, more commonly known as the AMPrint Center. One of the first research facilities in the world to specifically focus on multifunctional 3D printing, the AMPrint Center works with businesses and other researchers to develop next-generation processes and new functional materials that are optimized for 3D printing.
