What is the ambassador program?
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.
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.
WiSys launched the pilot program in August 2014 at UW-Parkside and UW-River Falls and the program is currently available at all UW System campuses (except Madison and Milwaukee).
