Clarkson University's Center For Advanced Materials Processing Is Redesignated As Center For Advanced Technology
Potsdam, N.Y. — Clarkson University’s Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP) has been redesignated as a Center for Advanced Technology (CAT) by the New York State Science and Technology Foundation (NYSSTF).
“The recertification of CAMP makes two important statements,” said Clarkson University President Denny Brown. “First, the scientists and engineers working in CAMP are engaged in high-quality research which has received strong endorsement from the National Research Council review.
“Second, New York companies have confirmed and emphasized the importance of CAMP research in helping them to remain competitive. We at Clarkson are proud of CAMP’s contribution to New York and I think the people of the North Country are proud to be home for this important research center.”
Currently completing its tenth year as a Center for Advanced Technology, CAMP applied for redesignation in response to a request for proposal issued by the Science and Technology Foundation to all interested universities in the State. After the proposal and a National Research Council review process, the board of the Foundation met in New York City on May 20 and redesignated CAMP as a CAT for another 10-year period, subject to good annual performance, resulting in significant economic impact.
CAMP is one of 13 Centers for Advanced Technology in New York State, which receive base funding through the Science and Technology Foundation to promote economic development in the state. CAMP carries out its mission principally by means of collaborative research and development projects with industry, working with both large and small companies.
