Research & Technology Committee
The mission of the SyracuseCoE R&T Committee is to advance the creation of state of the art technology in Clean and Renewable Energy, Indoor Environmental Quality, and Water Resources by developing education and professional development through industry-academic collaboration, technology transfer, and by seeking signature projects through which these efforts can be demonstrated.
The two signature activities of the R&T Committee are the R&T Forums and the R&T Roadmaps, a structured, comprehensive approach to technology based strategic planning in the fields of clean and renewable energy, indoor environmental quality, and water resources.
Co-Chairs of the R&T Committee are Bob DelZoppo of Syracuse Research Corporation and Tom Young of SyracuseCoE Platinum Partner Clarkson University.
The R&T Committee is divided into three sub-committees that correspond to SyracuseCoE's three focus areas:
• Clean and Renewable Energy—Sub-Committee Co-Chairs: Mike Kelleher of SUNY-ESF, Del Dausman of C&S Companies, Mike Kelleher of SUNY-ESF, and Darek Letkiewicz of O'Brien & Gere.
• Indoor Environmental Quality—Sub-Committee Co-Chairs: Alan Hedge of Cornell University and Larry Wetzel of Air Innovations.
• Water Resources—Sub-Committee Co-Chairs: Charley Driscoll of Syracuse University and Jim Rhea
These sessions focus on creating actionable events from which the attendees can benefit. Each session includes a cross section of people from a variety of groups including relevant industries, academia, and medicine.
These forums provide a great opportunity for networking, brainstorming, and learning about cutting edge environmental and energy systems technologies , and research and demonstration projects taking place in New York's Creative Core.
More details about the forums, as well as a calendar of events, can be found at on the Research & Technology Forums home page.
SyracuseCoE Technology Roadmaps envision the state of the industry five years from now and beyond in the three focus areas of SyracuseCoE. Technology Roadmaps are designed to be a structured, comprehensive approach to technology based strategic planning ...
Structured insofar as the process of creating the roadmap is as important as the end product;
Comprehensive insofar as Technology Roadmaps include a broad set of key technical and businessdrivers; and
Strategic insofar as Technology Roadmaps define strategies for technology based organizations based on the SyracuseCoE vision and mission
