UB President Satish K. Tripathi, co-chair of the Western New York Regional Development Council, is quoted in an article in the Buffalo News about the latest priority projects that will compete for up to $760 million in the state’s third round of economic development funding. “As we embark on year three of Gov. Cuomo’s Regional Council initiative, it is clear momentum is building in Western New York,” he said. The projects include investing in more high-performance advanced computing and data analytics at UB’s Center for Computational Research and creating the nation’s first Rare Earth Recycling facility in partnership with TAM Ceramics Group, which will work with UB and other educational partners to develop skills training, advanced technologies and rare-earth materials uses.
