In August 2022, President Biden signed the bipartisan CHIPS and Science Act into law, promising a historic investment in infrastructure to create the technologies of the future – nanotechnology, quantum computing, and artificial intelligence among them – and equipping U.S. workers, communities, and businesses to win the 21st-century innovation race.
Building on that consequential moment, Dean of the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, Jelena Kovačević, and Professor and Director of NYU’s Nanofabrication Facility, Davood Shahrjerdi, will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the newly minted NYU Nanofabrication Cleanroom.
NYU and this core research space are part of the NORDTECH Microelectronics Commons consortium, including NYCREATES; the University at Albany College of Nanotechnology, Science, and Engineering; Cornell University; Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute; and IBM. Our investments in research and our partnerships with NORDTECH and others enable NYU to fulfill the promise of the CHIPS and Science Act by developing and prototyping new cutting-edge chips, which will enhance multiple industries, including transportation, the development of 6G communications, IoT, medical devices, robotics and much more– all capable of being manufactured in New York State.
Remarks will be given by:
- Charles E. Schumer, U.S. Senate Majority Leader (video remarks)
- Linda Mills, President, New York University
- Stacie Bloom, Vice Provost for Research and Chief Research Officer, New York University
- Jelena Kovačević, William R. Berkley Professor and Dean, NYU Tandon School of Engineering
- Greg Gabadadze, Professor of Physics and Dean for Science, NYU College of Arts and Sciences
- Other speakers may be announced
We hope you can join us to celebrate our Nanofabrication Facility and a new era of research at NYU. RSVP is required to attend and is requested by Wednesday, October 11th.
