SUNY foundation: nanoscale college (wow, they must have some really tiny buildings and students -- HL) drives research funding to UAlbany (The Business Review)
- The state University at Albany received the third most research funding from federal and private sponsors of any SUNY school during the 2004 fiscal year, according to estimates by the Research Foundation.
The foundation, a private, nonprofit corporation that administers SUNY's research activity, estimated that UAlbany received $132.1 million for research during the year ended June 30, 2004. UAlbany saw a 69 percent increase in funding over the previous year, which the foundation said is primarily attributable to the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering and the Center of Excellence in Nanoelectronics. The college is considered the first in the country to be focused entirely on nanotechnology, and is located at the state university's $1 billion Albany NanoTech research center. More here
