UW-Milwaukee Chancellor Mark Mone will unveil plans for campus-wide programs related to innovation, entrepreneurism and technology transfer at the Jan. 14 meeting of the Wisconsin Innovation Network in Milwaukee.

Registration, networking and hors d’oeuvres begins at 4:30 p.m. Two 20-minute tours of the facility will be offered at 4:40 p.m. and 5 p.m., with the presentation at 5:30 p.m. The cost is $10 for students, $25 for WIN members and Milwaukee County Research Park tenants, $35 for non-members and included with WIN corporate memberships.  The meeting will also feature a brief tour of the UW-Milwaukee’s new Innovation Accelerator, 1225 Discovery Parkway, Wauwatosa. Located on what many area residents would know as the Milwaukee County Grounds near Highway 45 and Watertown Plank Road, the Innovation Accelerator is the first installment in a larger UWM Innovation Campus that will eventually fill 89 acres.

Mone will outline how the campus and the related UWM Research Foundation are forging stronger industry partnerships while engaging more faculty and students in an innovation agenda.

“The evolution of UW-Milwaukee as a campus where research, innovation and entrepreneurship are vital components continues,” said Tom Still, president of the Wisconsin Technology Council. “We’re excited to hear about the next stage.”

WIN-Milwaukee meetings are held in cooperation with BizStarts and sponsored by UW-Milwaukee and UWM Research Foundation.
