In this year's New York State budget, state officials have increased funding for the Centers of Excellence. As a result the CBLS and UB's Center of Excellence in Materials Informatics (CMI) will each receive
$1M in operating funds
to continue driving innovation and accelerating economic development in our region.
In a time when budgets and funding levels are being held steady and in some instances even decreased, this boost is a phenomenal testament to what the Centers of Excellence have accomplished with limited funds.
A special thanks to the WNY delegation, the Cuomo Administration and the legislative staff for their efforts on our behalf. Their recognition of the value of these tech-based economic development entities will enable both the CBLS and the CMI to further expand engagement with out industry partners, to drive innovation and economic impact.
