For almost 20 years, WiSys has worked to support the University of Wisconsin System with the vision of building a culture of innovation for a better future.
- WiSys supports the creation and transfer of innovations from the UW System to the marketplace.
- The strong partnership between WiSys and the UW System helps the UW campuses fulfill their roles as twenty-first century leaders in research, discovery and innovation.
* UW Comprehensive Campuses include UW-Eau Claire, UW-Green Bay, UW-La Crosse, UW-Oshkosh, UW-Parkside, UW-Platteville, UW-River Falls, UW-Stevens Point, UW-Stout, UW-Superior and UW-Whitewater
WiSys helps researchers and innovators from the statewide 11 four-year comprehensive campuses identify innovative technologies and bring them to the marketplace. To achieve this, last year alone WiSys awarded over $600,000 in grant funds across the UW system. This led to 64 innovations disclosed to WiSys and 12 patents issued. WiSys also coordinates several annual events geared toward innovation, research, and enhancing the student experience. To learn more about WiSys, please visit http://wisys.org/
