State Connections

Clean Energy Incubator
The Clean Energy Incubator (CEI) is a joint industry outreach effort by the Golisano Institute for Sustainability and RIT's Venture Creations business incubator, which serves as home for CEI. The role of CEI is to assist early stage clean energy companies in product development, business and marketing planning and technology commercialization. The incubator is one of four statewide and is a part of New York State's clean energy initiative. More
New York State Pollution Prevention Institute (NYSP2I)
The New York State Pollution Prevention Institute (NYSP2I) is a statewide research and technology transfer center funded by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. RIT and its partner universities, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Clarkson University, and the University of Buffalo, along with the state's ten regional technology development centers (RTDC) together comprise the NYSP2I. It was developed to foster the transformation and development of sustainable businesses and organizations in New York State. More
New York Wine & Culinary Center
New York is also home to many innovative, philanthropic food and beverage organizations. In 2002, Constellation Brands, Wegmans Food Market, Inc., Rochester Institute of Technology and the New York Wine and Grape Foundation came together with a common goal - to create a gateway for the people of New York and from around the world to experience New York's wine and food industries.  This partnership of corporate, academic and government organizations formed the non-profit New York Wine and Culinary Center to showcase and provide a gateway to New York's dynamic wine and food industries.
