Gov. Cuomo's REDC round 3 funds SUNYIT projects
The third round of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Regional Economic Development Council initiative contains significant funding for two SUNYIT projects. The CNSE-SUNYIT Quad-C and the Marcy Nanocenter at SUNYIT were among priority projects receiving funding as part of the Mohawk Valley REDC’s $82.4 million “top performer” award announced December 11 in Albany. The Mohawk Valley REDC is co-chaired by Robert E. Geer, acting president of SUNYIT. Among the Mohawk Valley awards announced:
