A Wisconsin partnership led by WiSys, a supporting foundation of the University of Wisconsin System that sparks research, innovation and entrepreneurship across the state, has been awarded $999,911 from the U.S. National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Regional Innovation Engines (“NSF Engines”) program.

The NSF Engines Development Award, “NSF Engines Development Award: Advancing Sustainable Agriculture in Wisconsin,” will support a partnership of 30 organizations from across the state as they lay the groundwork to develop an ambitious, effective and credible ‘regional innovation engine’ that harnesses the region’s talent and intellectual capital to make Wisconsin a global leader in sustainable agriculture.

Demonstrating that capability will allow this group to compete for additional NSF resources and long-term support, including a possible NSF Engines Type 2 award of up to $160 million over 10 years.
