The WiSys Ambassador Program aims to enhance the vital connection between WiSys and the research community on UW System campuses. Engaging students to serve as WiSys Ambassadors brings a new dimension to WiSys' outreach mission and augments our visibility and presence among researchers and students on each of the campuses we serve.
Interested in helping to grow your campus' research community? Become a WiSys Ambassador.
WiSys Ambassadors receive training in Intellectual Property as well as the technology transfer process, and learn how to access resources offered by WiSys and other campus organizations designed to support technology development and entrepreneurial activity.
Ambassadors spend five to 10 hours per month enhancing the understanding and awareness of WiSys' role across the campuses, increasing engagement with academics and students undertaking innovative research and helping to identify potential opportunities where WiSys can provide support. WiSys Ambassadors are involved in organizing seminars, hosting educational workshops, and serving as a valuable resource for their respective departments and campus.
WiSys launched the pilot program in August 2014 at UW-Parkside and UW-River Falls and the program is currently available at all Comprehensive Campuses.
