A message from the Vice President for Research

The economy of the future will be fueled by environmentally sound practices — and “green” jobs — in numerous disciplines. Binghamton University researchers are expanding the possibilities for this new era of sustainability with innovations in solar energy, batteries, fuel cells, electronics packaging technologies, environmental sensors and power-aware computing. Multidisciplinary collaborations and partnerships with industry are helping to ensure that ideas developed on our campus have an impact far beyond New York.

Our graduate students also carry this pioneering and collaborative spirit into the next chapters of their lives, whether in industry or in academic pursuits. These outstanding scholars are making their mark in fields ranging from history to materials science. Their presence creates new possibilities for Binghamton researchers while enriching our vibrant intellectual community.

Binghamton’s creativity and innovation are also evident in our continued research growth and in the expansion of our efforts in technology transfer.
