Our Mission


CASE’s vision is to be the University applied research center best able to rapidly assemble interdisciplinary academic and private sector teams to develop innovative solutions in complex behavioral, information and communication systems to accelerate business and community growth.

Our Mission is to catalyze growth in the high-technology economy of New York State by fusing technical competency with industry-specific knowledge to advance applications of predictive analysis, monitoring and/or control of complex behavioral, information and communication systems.

  • Facilitating, supporting and providing project management for university-industry collaboration in research and development;

  • Providing fast, flexible access to talented students;

  • Bringing together interdisciplinary teams from industry and academia for brainstorming and networking to foster and spawn innovation;

  • Identifying funding opportunities and assisting university-industry teams in developing and delivering successful proposals and projects;
