But what exactly is Nano Utica?<br /><br />On a chilly November morning, contractors are giving public tours of a construction site at the SUNY Institute of Technology in Utica. But it’s not a classroom building or new dorm they’re walking around. The public is getting a sneak peak at something known here as Quad-C, the Computer Chip Commercialization Center.<br /> Wed, 29 Jan 2014 14:00:38 +0000 Vanessa Maines 50575 at http://wrvo.org Nano Utica provides spark in Rust Belt city Buffalo’s RiverBend to be site of two new clean-energy research companies http://wrvo.org/post/buffalo-s-riverbend-be-site-two-new-clean-energy-research-companies <div class="card-content"><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden "><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p></p><p>Gov.

One community weighs the options http://wrvo.org/post/farming-or-high-tech-park-one-community-weighs-options <p>The quiet western New York farming community of Alabama sits among acres of farm and wetland. It’s also the site chosen for a new Science Technology and Manufacturing Park, known as STAMP. The high-tech park has also been the subject of some public scrutiny, as Genesee county rates highly amongst top agricultural producers in the state. The project is also an example of when the values of agricultural communities are starting to rub up against an upstate development agenda focused around high-tech manufacturing.</p> Mon, 27 May 2013 13:01:33 +0000 Ashley Hirtzel 38501 at http://wrvo.org Farming or high-tech park?
