A Destination for the Next Generation of Entrepreneurs and Innovators
SUNY Albany ETEC will bring together faculty, students and entrepreneurial business partners under one roof to promote a spirit of innovation while at the same time enhancing upstate New York’s competitiveness in key STEM industries. The goal is to provide business access to various programmatic research clusters, provide advanced research facilities, and foster strategic partnerships in an environment that cultivates industry collaboration, accelerates commercialization and fuels future research.
Through a rigorous programming and planning phase, we brought together key parties to evaluate the size and number of spaces, areas, space types and organization of the proposed program elements. The final program is composed of atmospheric research, chemistry and physics, as well as incubator and private partnership spaces. Given its location and size, this building will serve as a “front door” to SUNY Albany’s science program — demonstrating the university’s commitment to furthering science through collaboration.
It will be a destination building, marking SUNY Albany’s eastern expansion while highlighting the environmental sciences. Its design and organization will provide an inspiring and thought-provoking place to work study and learn for our next generation of entrepreneurs and innovators.
