WiSys NSF Engines Event


Please join us on August 3 to learn more about the National Science Foundation-funded, WiSys-led initiative to advance sustainable agriculture in Wisconsin!  

The NSF Engines Development Award, “NSF Engines Development Award: Advancing Sustainable Agriculture in Wisconsin,” will support a partnership of 30 organizations from across the state, including UW-Parkside, as we lay the groundwork to develop an ambitious, effective and credible 'regional innovation engine' that harnesses the region's talent and intellectual capital to make Wisconsin a global leader in sustainable agriculture.  

WiSys, the project lead, is the supporting foundation of the University of Wisconsin System whose mission is to support research, innovation, and entrepreneurship across the state.  

You are invited to join us for a morning and afternoon of information-sharing and networking!
