CEIS- CAT Announcement

Since 1992, CEIS has been designated as a New York State Center for Advanced Technology (CAT). As a CAT, we have worked to support collaborative projects between private entities and university researchers. Over the last ten years we have supported nearly 300 projects in an incredibly diverse range of interests which have generated over $700 million in direct, measurable, economic impact, creating some 200 jobs, and retaining another 239.

We are proud to announce that New York’s Empire State Development has chosen CEIS from an incredibly competitive field to continue as a Center for Advanced Technologies for another ten years in our focus area of photonics and imaging science systems.

In this transitional period, we think it is appropriate to look back and highlight some of the incredible work our partnering organizations and primary investigators have done in the last year, as well as looking forward to the future and the arrival of AIM Photonics.

This is a very exciting time for us, and we are happy to say that the future looks ever better and ever brighter here in Rochester.  Check back to learn what projects will be funded in the Center’s new CAT cycle as well as exciting developments in photonics, and Rochester’s photonics community.
