CIC2020 Visits S3IP to learn more about academic-industrial collaboration - April 9, 2010

Seventeen students from the Spring 2010 Catalysts for Intellectual Capital 2020 (CIC) class gathered Friday, April 9 at the Small Scale Systems Integration and Packaging Center (S3IP) to hear about S³IP research and economic development, and to learn about what the Center means to the Binghamton community and college students.

CIC 2020, Catalyst for Intellectual Capital 2020, is a Binghamton University class and student organization that aims to bridge the gap between BU students and the community. To educate students about the Greater Binghamton region and to encourage students to remain in the area after graduation, the group visits various campus organizations, such as S3IP, and companies in the community to learn more from their leadership, about their programs and initiatives.

The CIC 2020 students come from various academic backgrounds, including bioengineering, English and political science. “Our goal is to retain young talent in the area after graduation to stay in the community and help it improve,” said Jodi Epstein, CIC2020 executive director and a senior majoring in human development. “I have been working with the center for five years because it’s achieving what we are trying to do.”

The agenda consisted of a brief introduction to S3IP by Director, Bahgat Sammakia, where the students discussed the Center’s role in the region, state and nation. This meeting was followed by a visit to Endicott Interconnect Technologies (EI) in Endicott, N.Y., where the group met with President Jay McNamara. While at EI, the group toured of the Center for Advanced Microelectronics Manufacturing (CAMM), a Binghamton University and EI collaboration, The CAMM, a manufacturing laboratory focused on developing new flexible electronic technologies, serves as an example of academia working in collaboration with industry.
