Strategic Partnership for Industrial Resurgence (SPIR)
SPIR Report – 2010 – 2011
SPIR, a State University of New York (SUNY) grant program, fills a gap in state industrial assistance programs through technically advanced, multidisciplinary assistance delivered on a fast turnaround basis to New York State companies. Companies receiving SPIR funds – which typically average about one-third of the overall project cost – have access to more than 50 UB faculty engineers and applied scientists from the seven schools of engineering.
UB IE's 'Research Institute for Safety and Security in Transportation' conducts innovative research that combines human factors and technical expertise to better understand and improve quality performance in this critical endeavor. The center works closely with the FAA and Sandia National Laboratories.
Multidisciplinary Center for Earthquake Engineering Research (MCEER)
MCEER is one of the foremost centers of its kind in the world. MCEER's overall goal is to enhance the seismic resiliency of communities through improved engineering and management tools for critical infrastructure systems, water supply, electric power, hospitals, transportation systems.
