University Research Park was established by the Board of Regents of the University of Wisconsin System in 1983. Since that time, the Park has served more than 126 tenant businesses. The Park has nearly reached capacity with its current space configuration. Most of the original goals have been realized or exceeded.
The MGE Innovation Center, which functions as the Park's business incubator facility, is a world-class attraction and is paying off fiscally. Many technology transfer projects have advanced and have become more visible, creating additional challenges and opportunities. Taken together, these issues serve as a driving force for creating a strategic plan for the University Research Park as we move through the 21st century. To view our Strategic Plan please click here.
