Centers for Advanced Technology (CAT) Program

Centers for Advanced Technology (CAT) Programs support university-industry collaborative research and technology transfer in commercial relevant technologies. The CAT program was established in 1983 so that the technology researched by New York's higher education institutions could be channeled into commercially viable products produced in the higher sector.
