SP1.4: Industry-Funded Research

This project aims to recruit the Southern Tier High-Technology Incubator director and convene an industry task force to develop recommendations to enable Binghamton University to significantly grow industry-funded research. The search committee for the director of the Southern Tier High-Technology Incubator has interviewed six candidates and invited three to campus for a second interview and to meet with stakeholders. The new director will work closely on the design and construction of the incubator to be best-in-class. The Industry Task Force will meet from January-April 2014 and issue its report to the vice president for research in May 2014.
