The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire on Thursday hosted a meeting of the Wisconsin Technology Council to discuss implementation plans for the $9.4 million Workforce Innovation Grant awarded to the university and Mayo Clinic Health System in Northwest Wisconsin in late 2021.
As the science and technology advisor to Gov. Tony Evers and the Legislature, the Wisconsin Technology Council serves a key networking role in the state through its Innovation Network, a membership arm dedicated to fostering statewide innovation and entrepreneurship.
Tom Still, president of the Wisconsin Technology Council, moderated the panel of guests invited to highlight for area stakeholders and citizens the plans for the grant. Still said the grant award will apply “innovative, multifaceted approaches to health education, delivery of rural health care service and improved outcomes in rural health care throughout northwestern Wisconsin.”
