New York shows strong support for semiconductor investments
No other state can match New York’s investment and support of the semiconductor industry. You can see it in our historic investments in GLOBALFOUNDRIES, IBM or ON Semiconductor, world-class research facilities like CNSE, Rensselaer University, Cornell University, RIT, Clarkson University, University of Buffalo and Stony Brook, and in our newest leading-edge investments in Solar City, Soraa, 1366 Technologies and amsAG.
New York has its largest-ever SEMICON West presence this year. Empire State Development, and SUNY Polytechnic Institute, have joined with the New York Loves Nanotech group of local economic development agencies from upstate New York, including the Saratoga County Prosperity Partnership, to broaden our marketing outreach to the semiconductor industry. We’re supported in this effort by investments from private companies including J.W. Danforth and National Grid.
This year we’re emphasizing our broadening reach with representatives from: the Power Electronics Manufacturing Consortium; AIM Photonics; shovel-ready sites like Luther Forest Technology Campus; Western NY STAMP; Syracuse’s White Pine; and Marcy Nanocenter/Nano Utica, along with a robust supply chain.
We encourage SEMICON West visitors to come see us in Booth 6378 North Hall – and at Cornell University’s Center for Technology Licensing in North Hall R6 – to see what New York has to offer in the way of world-class research and development and unparalleled economic development incentives.
