Experimentation in areas of technology and ideas is an important part of improving operations and adding to the overall value of the UW System.

As part of a special initiative, the University of Wisconsin System Innovation Program sought to identify and support proposals focused on the following areas:

  • Teaching and learning technology to explore emerging technology, support online learning technology initiatives, enabling faculty and staff development, and promoting robust and centrally managed data services.
  • Exploring of solutions through prototyping and pilot phase to assist in selecting the best solutions for aspects of administration, such as continuity of operations, consolidated cloud services, mobility strategies, and other innovations which improve employee productivity while reducing cost.
