At the Grainger Institute for Engineering, we recognize the need to reshape collaboration models to better serve our stakeholders: industry, academia and society. In order to match academic interest with real need in a way that develops students for tomorrow’s workforce, produces innovation, and fortifies companies, we are looking beyond traditional sponsorship opportunities and approaching public-private partnerships in bold new ways.


We are interested in matching our resources with industry’s to address business needs and growth. We invite the private sector to think critically about how we can make collaborative research efforts more achievable, desirable and effective.



To start tackling technical challenges together, engineering researchers and industry can leverage resources across the College of Engineering and UW-Madison’s campus. Get in touch with us to explore bold new partnership models, accelerated contracting, and no-sweat research relationships, and to connect with engineering faculty, staff and students on technical topics that matter to you.
