The Innovare Advancement Center is a key part of the Central NY Defense Alliance’s long-term effort to support the creation of a global technology and innovation hub in Central NY, advancing collaborative research in quantum, neuromorphic computing, artificial intelligence, cyber and unmanned aerial systems. This week’s “Million Dollar Quantum Tech U Accelerator” event hosted by Innovare in celebration of the virtual ribbon-cutting at its state-of-the-art facility was a huge success. Over a thousand international participants took part in an exciting slate of presentations, including a keynote by famed astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson and U.S. Air Force and U.S. Space Force Acquisition Executive Will Roper and the announcement of 18 major research awards.
