CCMR Facilities 101

Facilities 101 is an annual event to introduce prospective business and industry users to CCMR shared facilities and resources with an overview provided by staff along with facility tours and live demonstrations.

Facilities 101 is April 3, 2024

Companies and/or individuals with a materials-related technical challenge are invited to visit our Ithaca campus to learn more about the programs, facilities, and other resources available through CCMR. Technical directors, product managers, engineers, technicians, and any other potential CCMR facility users are encouraged to attend this industry-focused introduction to the laboratories, equipment, and staff associated with the CCMR.

CCMR will provide opportunities to meet one-on-one with technical staff who manage the facilities, take walking tours of the labs, see equipment demonstrations, and discuss questions or concerns with a CCMR expert.

This year, Facilities 101 will be held at the Physical Sciences Building (PSB), 245 Feeney Way, Ithaca NY, 14853 in Room 120. Check-in and lunch will be in the Atrium.
