NYSTAR Annual Meeting @ Two Locations
Oct 24 – Oct 25 all-day

October 24th we will begin the meeting at Coltivare Culinary Center, 235 S. Cayuga Street, Ithaca

October 25th we will meet at Cornell University’s Biotechnology Building G10, 526 Campus Rd, Ithaca, (next to Weill Hall).  Attendees will  be directed to park in the  TRB lot.  A shuttle will be provided, or it is a 10-15 walk to the building.

New York’s leadership in the global innovation economy is due in significant part to the important work of the centers supported by Empire State Development’s Division of Science, Technology & Innovation (NYSTAR). Join your colleagues from across this powerful network at the NYSTAR Annual Meeting in Ithaca, NY on October 24-25, 2017.

This two-day event is a premier opportunity to deepen your knowledge of other centers’ programs and expertise and learn about new innovation-related state initiatives and funding opportunities. The agenda will also include guest speakers, asset highlights and tours, and sessions on NYSTAR program and contract requirements.

This event is powered by FuzeHub and Cornell University
