New York-Israel Collaboration Program in Applicative Nanoscale Technologies
             

Agreement signed March 20, 2013
between CNSE, NYS, and the
Israeli Lead Innovation
and Commercialization Agency
Supporting Governor Andrew M. Cuomo's vision for New York State's burgeoning high-tech economy, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), signed in March 2013, established an international partnership between New York State and the State of Israel, through a collaboration involving SUNY Polytechnic Institute's Colleges of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (SUNY Poly CNSE) and the Israeli Industry Center for Research & Development (MATIMOP), that will significantly expand business, technology, and economic relations in the growing field of nanotechnology while enabling billions of dollars in new investments and the creation of thousands of high-tech jobs in New York and Israel.

SUNY Poly CNSE in Albany, New York; MATIMOP in Israel, on behalf of the Office of the Chief Scientist (OCS) in the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor; and the Israel National Nanotechnology Initiative (INNI) jointly announced a New R&D collaboration platform in the field of Nanoscale Technologies. The new program offers access to SUNY Poly’s resources, services, and know-how and enhances collaboration with US and international entities that operate within SUNY Poly in the following fields:

• Sub systems, sensors and accessories for the nano-level clean rooms

• Simulation, modeling tools, and methodologies
 
• CMOS nano-level design tools, methods, and testing

• Advanced CMOS, 3Di and post-CMOS devices, architectures and applications

• Photonics


This new initiative with SUNY Poly CNSE includes 3 collaboration tracks:

(1) Industrial R&D and Commercialization collaboration

(2) Academic collaboration

(3) Collaboration between the Israeli MAGNET Consortium Metro 450 and the Global 450mm Consortium (G450C) that operates at SUNY Poly CNSE
