State Funding Opportunities

New York State Office of Science, Technology & Academic Research
The Jobs 2000 Act established the New York State Office of Science, Technology, and Academic Research (NYSTAR). This agency is charged with growing New York State's leadership position in high technology research and economic development. A central element of NYSTAR's mission is the recognition that New York's world-class public and private research universities and academic centers can be powerful economic development engines.

Through programs and strategic initiatives, NYSTAR increases university-business partnerships that ultimately lead to the development and commercialization of the most economically promising technologies of tomorrow. Commercialization of new technologies results in new companies and importantly, new high-quality, high-value jobs. NYSTAR is also responsible for Centers for Advanced Technology (CATs) and Technology Development Organizations (TDOs).
