WiSys Technology’s first regional associate will serve UWGB, others

Bob Wise, who served for more than 20 years on the UW science faculty, has recently joined WiSys Technology Foundation as the first regional associate. Wise will focus outreach and development efforts on three UW System comprehensive campuses in central Wisconsin and the Fox Valley region: Oshkosh, Stevens Point and Green Bay. He also will work with the two-year UW colleges in those regions. “By bringing our first regional associate on board we’re going to deliver stronger, more focused services to those vital campuses,” says Arjun Sanga, executive director of WiSys. In his new role Wise aims to educate faculty, staff and students about WiSys, the foundation that patents and manages inventions coming out of the UW System. He will be on-site weekly to meet with faculty, assess their research programs and identify opportunities for WiSys support. “Bob’s role goes beyond teaching stakeholders about intellectual property and tech transfer,” says Ray Cross, president of the UW System. “He’s tasked with promoting a culture of entrepreneurship on three campuses with a rich tradition of innovation.”
