SUNY Oswego’s enterprising Agricultural Testing and Analysis Labs at the Port of Oswego and the Richard S. Shineman Center for Science, Engineering and Innovation won a national Award of Excellence at the University Economic Development Association Annual Summit in Roanoke, Va., in October.
The labs—created to close an export loop in the regional economy—utilize trained student chemists to test and analyze grain shipments, meeting the needs of one of the Port of Oswego Authority’s largest customers, Perdue AgriBusiness, and providing on-the-job business experience for undergraduates.
The UEDA honored the program for “synergistically connecting Talent + Place in ways that enrich participation, and otherwise enhance quality of place.”
