CAMP December Newsletter: Page 8

From the Director


During these unprecedented and extremely challenging conditions globally, CAMP remains strong and continues to deliver on its core mission.  I am delighted to report that our combined efforts, over the years, at CAMP and Clarkson University have led to the recertification by NYSTAR of CAMP for a third decade.  This requires that we maintain our focus on research and technology transfer activities for the benefit of NY State, especially, and elsewhere.

CAMP's identity emanates from its committed and talented multidisciplinary team of researchers - faculty, postdoctoral and student associates - and it is greatly enhanced by their continued accomplishments that have been described in these newsletters. CAMP also benefits immensely from the strong support of the Clarkson administration.

Utilizing the experience, advice, and support of the multitude of our Corporate Partners, CAMP researchers are exploring new research thrusts in photovoltaics, nanomaterials and structures, and energy storage, while continuing their excellence in colloidal and surface science and engineering. The newly announced CAMP/NYSERDA joint symposium, Advanced Materials to Support Greenhouse Gas Reductions,” to be held on April 3 in Albany at the Desmond Hotel & Conference Center is an example of our shared research efforts.

I want to express my appreciation and gratitude for the support extended to CAMP by all of its constituents as we rededicate ourselves to solving the challenges ahead for our society.
