Workforce Development Institute:

The Workforce Development Institute (WDI) is a statewide 501(c)3 non-profit that improves the lives of working men and women across New York State by providing targeted programs in workforce, economic, and community development. A focus on helping businesses become and remain successful is a key component of this programming. Healthy businesses provide employment opportunities for New York’s citizens and, in turn, are dependent on a well-trained workforce and community support. The WDI works to ensure that investments in all three areas – workforce, economic and community development – are integrated and reflect the perspectives of working men and women. WDI’s agenda is shaped by the needs of specific regions, businesses, or unions.

Cornell Center for Materials Research:

The centers undertake materials research of a scope and complexity that would not be feasible under traditional funding for individual research projects or small groups.
