Schumer to announce 'landmark' nanotech deal for UAlbany

U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer will announce Monday what his office is pronouncing "a landmark agreement"

U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer will announce Monday what his office is pronouncing "a landmark agreement" creating the first-ever partnership between the federal government and the University of Albany’s College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering.

Schumer, D-N.Y., said in a news release this afternoon that he has brokered an agreement between UAlbany and the National Institute of Standards and Technology that will further expand the university's work in nanotechnology and bring federal research expertise and resources to the nanoscale campus.

Details of that agreement will be announced at a news conference at 2 p.m. Monday at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering.

Schumer had previously helped secure nearly $900,000 for the university's Center for National Competitiveness in Nanoscale Characterization, which triggered an additional investment of $14 million dollars.
