Andre Filiatrault describes the research capabilities of SEESL to foreign trade mission delegates.

On April 30, 2009, over 70 delegates from 35 countries visited UB’s Structural Engineering and Earthquake Simulation Laboratory (SEESL) as part of a foreign trade mission to the Western New York area to learn more about market-based opportunities for investment. The group was hosted by New York State Governor David A. Paterson and the Empire State Development Corporation, and spent two days visiting various businesses and organizations in the area. SEESL and MCEER Director Andre Filiatrault provided an overview of the UB-NEES testing capabilities and research programs. Tom Albrechcinski,
the UB-NEES Site Operations Manager,
coordinated the visit and organized the tour.
