MANHATTAN — Universities from around the world want to learn from New York City.
An invitation to build an applied science and engineering research campus in New York has had 18 responses from schools from as far away as India, Finland, Korea and the United Kingdom.
The invitation to build was put out by the New York City Economic Development Corp. last year in the hopes of stimulating a growth industry in the city.
Among potential development sites is Governors Island. Goldwater Campus on Roosevelt Island is another.
Mayor Bloomberg's office told the Post the city hopes to pick one applicant by the end of the year.
