Centers for Innovation
Wonder, wander, and soak up new knowledge as it’s being developed, new art as it’s being created, or history as it is being discovered.
Hartwick College Grain Innovation Center
Hartwick College has been working with the City of Oneonta and the County of Otsego Industrial Development Agency to incorporate the Grain Innovation Center (GIC) with a Downtown Revitalization Initiative awarded to the City through the New York State Regional Economic Development Council.
Construction has begun on a four-story, mixed-use building that will include Hartwick’s new Grain Innovation Center. With this project, Hartwick College has identified a need to develop new and better means to assess the quality of potential wheat cultivars for whole grain milling and baking. The result will provide support for grain producers, millers and bakers in the regional grain industry, while enhancing College offerings and community connections.
