The Research Foundation of the State University of New York (RF-SUNY) and the Empire State Development Corporation (ESD) both aim to catalyze the varied engagements of NY CREATES with academic faculty. These faculty could be in New York, in the SUNY campuses or in private NY-based universities, as well as in research institutions of note across the United States, and the globe. Research partnerships with faculty range from neuromorphic device fabrication to chips for characterizing quantum decoherence, from the recently announced 65nm CMOS Academic MPW to the established, and highly successful AIM Photonics MPW program.

The Research Foundation for The State University of New York (RF) is the largest comprehensive university-connected research foundation in the country. It exists to serve the State University of New York (SUNY) by providing essential administrative services that enable SUNY faculty to focus their efforts on the education of students and the performance of life-changing research across a wide range of disciplines including medicine, engineering, physical sciences, energy, computer science, and social sciences. The RF is a private non-profit education cor­poration that is tax-exempt under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 501(c) (3).
