CEG to pitch region in Europe

ALBANY — The Center for Economic Growth will be in Europe this week, pitching research and development opportunities in the Capital Region.

On Wednesday and Thursday at Semicon Europa in Munich, CEG will give presentations on “Enabling the Northeast U.S. Advanced Electronics Hub” and “Corporate Research Initiatives in New York State.” The Albany-based development agency will be presenting along with members of the New York Loves Nano, a statewide consortium, supported by National Grid, consisting of Empire State Development, Mohawk Valley Edge, Onondaga Industrial Development Agency and SUNY Polytechnic Institute.

In 2017, Capital Region R&D services exports annually increased by 9.7 percent to $635.3 million, according to CEG, making R&D services the region’s second largest export by dollar value, trailing engine and power equipment.
