R&D

Brainpower, a critical asset to the Research and Development sector, is in ample supply in Cortland County and across the Central New York region. Major research universities are within a half-hour’s drive at Cornell and Syracuse Universities, each home to state Centers for Advanced Technologies, which support university-industry collaborative research and technology transfer in commercialy relevant technologies.

In addition, those institutions are supported by programs at other regional institutions helping to establish bioscience as the number one R&D cluster in New York State. Cortland County, with its proximity to that brainpower, its new, state certified business park, its location near Interstate 81 and other major roadways, is located perfectly as a top venue for jobs in this sector.
