To encourage greater collaboration between industry and New York’s research universities, ESD anticipates designating up to ten Centers for Advanced Technology (CAT) under this RFP. The CAT Program is designed to spur technology-based applied research and economic growth in New York; encourage applied research collaboration and innovation with industry; promote workforce development; better leverage State funds with investments from the Federal government, industry, foundations, and not-for-profit economic development organizations; and increase the competitiveness of New York State Companies over the Center’s ten year designation period.
Each proposed CAT must use ESD funds to enhance its resources in a specific Technology Focus (refer to Section I.F. of this RFP) to help New York State Companies remain competitive and solve production, applied research and development, and technical problems. To ensure that each CAT’s resources are invested in areas with the greatest commercial relevance to industry, each CAT must create an Industrial Advisory Board that includes representatives from companies operating within the Proposal’s Technology Focus.
