HTR and iCLEAN are pleased to invite you to a NEIR Program workshop and networking event, hosted by the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering. This is a great opportunity to get together with NYSERDA companies and EIRs in the program for networking and idea sharing within the New York State cleantech community.

Michael Riedlinger, HTR Program Manager for Technology Commercialization, will provide an overview of his experience as a mentor in the National Science Foundation Innovation Corps (NSF I-Corps) and Lean LaunchPad program at Stanford University. The talk will include specific techniques from this program that cleantech startups can immediately use to improve their odds of success in the marketplace.

Please join us at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering in Albany, NY on Wednesday, December 12 at 3:30 pm for the workshop, and stay for dinner and networking; or come at 5:30 pm for great networking opportunities, food and cleantech friends!


3:30 pm – 5:30 pm
Michael Riedlinger: Lean Techniques for Cleantech Startups
Michael will facilitate an interactive seminar on techniques learned in the NSF I-Corps program with a focus on tools and methods that clean tech companies can immediately apply to discover, build, and optimize their business model.

5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Networking and
Company Introductions
Each company will give a brief 2 minute introduction about their background, experience, and areas of expertise and interest.

About The College of Nanoscale Science & Engineering
The UAlbany College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) is the first college in the world dedicated to education, research, development and deployment in the emerging disciplines of nanoscience, nanoengineering, nanobioscience and nanoeconomics. With more than $14 billion in high-tech investments, CNSE represents the world’s most advanced university-driven research enterprise, offering students a one-of-a-kind academic experience and providing over 300 corporate partners with access to an unmatched ecosystem for leading-edge R&D and commercialization of nanoelectronics and nanotechnology innovations. CNSE’s footprint spans upstate New York, including its Albany NanoTech Complex, an 800,000-square-foot megaplex with the only fully-integrated, 300mm wafer, computer chip pilot prototyping and demonstration line within 85,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms. More than 2,700 scientists, researchers, engineers, students and faculty work here, from companies including IBM, Intel, GlobalFoundries, SEMATECH, Samsung, TSMC, Toshiba, Applied Materials, Tokyo Electron, ASML and Lam Research. An expansion now underway, part of which will house the world’s first Global 450mm Consortium, will add nearly 500,000 square feet of next-generation infrastructure, an additional 50,000 square feet of Class 1 capable cleanrooms, and more than 1,000 scientists, researchers and engineers from CNSE and global corporations. In addition, CNSE’s Solar Energy Development Center in Halfmoon provides a prototyping and demonstration line for next-generation CIGS thin-film solar cells, supporting its leadership of the U.S. Photovoltaic Manufacturing Consortium (PVMC). CNSE’s Smart System Technology and Commercialization Center of Excellence (STC) in Rochester offers state-of-the-art capabilities for MEMS fabrication and packaging. CNSE also co-founded and manages operations at the Computer Chip Commercialization Center at SUNYIT in Utica and is a co-founder of the Nanotechnology Innovation and Commercialization Excelerator in Syracuse.
