Congressman Richard Hanna is cosponsoring the Transfer Act of 2013, offering grants to innovative technology programs.

Joined by Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente and SUNYIT President Robert Geer, Hanna made the announcement at the Cayan Library at SUNYIT.

The bill, designed to enhance the growing partnership between the public and private sectors surrounding “Nano Utica,” is intended to help commercialize some of the research taking place.  By making grant monies available to universities, researchers, and laboratories, Congressman Hanna said that the bill will support those researchers already in the state as well as help entice those working on the cutting edge of technology to New York.

He said that researchers have suffered because of sequestration, and Hanna wants to make certain that they are not impeded from continuing the progress and advancements that have been achieved during the past decade.

In a written release SUNY President Robert Geer said, “Fostering connections between the university and businesses – creating jobs in our community with the work we do in the laboratory – is critically important and I thank Congressman Hanna for his attention to this important issue.”

Grants would amount to approximately $50,000.  The bill is now under consideration by the House of Representatives.
