Vision

Innovation Campus is a place where business and industry meets academic research to launch intellectual property for the new century.

As a “third generation” research park, Innovation Campus not only offers technology transfer and business incubation services, but incorporates the academic and research enterprise of the university directly into the development of a private sector park. This powerful combination of industry, academia and nonprofit research organizations working in true partnership at the same location will both attract companies to the region and leverage the intellectual property from academic research to spinout new companies.

The Innovation Campus is going to bring jobs to the region, it is going to start companies, it is where the future is being made today.

Peggy Troy
Children's Hospital and Health System has partnered with University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for many years to advance nursing practice and research. The university's Innovation Campus research center near the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center could be a wonderful catalyst for collaboration and rapid development of biomedical technologies and a terrific investment in the metro Milwaukee community.

John Raymond
The Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) strongly supports the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee's plans to develop Innovation Campus on the Milwaukee County Grounds in Wauwatosa. The development of Innovation Campus adjacent to the Medical College's campus will further solidify a growing collaboration between MCW and UWM in bioengineering and medical imaging that was established through a partnership in the federally-funded Clinical and Translational Science Institute of Southeastern Wisconsin. The planned project will galvanize existing collaborations, accelerate biomedical discovery, enhance extramural funding to both institutions, and lead to economic growth of the Wauwatosa region.

Tom Still
What does Innovation Campus mean to the rest of Wisconsin? Milwaukee is the state's largest city and UW-Milwaukee is Wisconsin's second-largest campus. A healthy economy in Milwaukee is vital to all of Wisconsin, for reasons ranging from tax generation to job creation to attracting young professionals who can help reverse Wisconsin's 'brain drain.' In time, Innovation Campus will become a symbol of the research-to-jobs growth of Milwaukee.

UWM's presence will provide an opportunity for institutions at the Regional Medical Center to gain direct access to basic science and applied engineering that will foster unprecedented growth in their research portfolios. This could attract companies to Southeastern Wisconsin as well as bring national attention to the region.
