What is Applied Sciences NYC?
Applied Sciences NYC is the City's unparalleled opportunity to build or expand top-tier applied sciences and engineering campuses. It is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to dramatically increase our potential for economic growth.
On December 19, 2011, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Cornell University President David Skorton, and Technion-Israel Institute of Technology President Peretz Lavie announced a historic partnership to build a $2 billion, two-million-square-foot applied science and engineering campus on Roosevelt Island in New York City.
As of November 2013, three additional programs have been selected along with the Cornell-Tech proposal: Carnegie Mellon, NYU, and Columbia University.
Collectively, the four projects are expected to generate more than $33.2 billion in nominal economic activity, over 48,000 permanent and temporary construction jobs, and approximately 1,000 spin-off companies by 2046.
NEWPF Panel Discussion
As part of our annual Project of the Year series, we will be bringing in a panel of experts from various parties coordinating on the program and also from the Cornell-Tech project implementation team. The panel will educate participants on the project and outline what it means for the City in both the near and long-term future.
There will be an underlying message relating to the public sector’s role in the program implementation from both a financing and staffing perspective.
The panel discussion will be followed by a reception and the opportunity to meet our panelists and visit with friends and colleagues.
Contact our Co-Presidents with any questions or comments you may have about Northeast Women in Public Finance. We look forward to hearing from you.
