Researchers at the University of Wisconsin, Madison received one award in particular, the Institutional Clinical and Translational Science Award, for $6.6 million in 2014.

“This new study demonstrates the return that’s being paid on the creation of University Research Park as part of the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s efforts to transfer university-discovered technology to the private sector, where it can be refined and commercialized,” said Mark D. Bugher, director of University Research Park. “The park companies that are doing this hard work generate almost a billion dollars in economic impact each year, support more than 9,000 jobs across Wisconsin and make significant state and local tax contributions. The results of the URP economic impact study reinforces the priority we’ve put on technology transfer and fostering the growth of companies born on this campus as a result.”
