UW System Administration, in collaboration with WiSys, is pleased to offer the Ignite Grant Program (formerly known as the Applied Research Grant Programs - ARG, AR-WiTAG and PDF) to UW System faculty and academic staff for applied research and prototype development.
Due to the financial impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, UW System temporarily suspended applications for prototype development funding for fiscal year 2021-22. Please contact your WiSys Regional Associate if you have a prototype development project that requires funding to discuss other options that may be available to you.
The Wisconsin Small Company Advancement Program (WiSCAP) connects the high-tech research and development needs of Wisconsin Small companies with the technical expertise of faculty at the UW Comprehensive campuses.
