“Beginning with our founding by NYSCC graduates in 1981 and on to recent analysis of new ceramic compositions, the CACT’s accessibility and capability to meet our needs have helped us grow.”

– Truett Sweeting, operations manager, VESUVIUS Hi-Tech Ceramics

·     spur technology-based applied research and economic development in New York;

·     encourage applied research collaboration and innovation with industry; promote workforce development;

·     better leverage State funds with investments from the Federal government, industry, foundations, and not-for-profit economic development organizations; and

·     increase the competitiveness of New York State Companies.

These case studies tell the stories of technological projects from conception to completion, and they provide excellent examples of problem-solving with regard to both products and processes.
