Corporate Open House to showcase Health, Innovation, and the Wisconsin Idea

August 7, 2013

UW-Madison’s second annual Corporate Open House, where companies are invited to campus to learn more about innovative opportunities for research, projects, talent, training and potential partnerships, will be held on Thursday, Aug. 22.

The open house will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Union South, 1308 W. Dayton St. The agenda and registration link can be found on the Office of Corporate Relations website.

The day will offer a variety of opportunities to learn, network and interact with UW and business partners who already benefit from their corporate relationship with the university. Representatives from UW–Madison schools and colleges and other campus partners will highlight the innovative ways they are working with business and industry.

There will be opportunities to learn what’s new from world class researchers and collaborators Rock Mackie, Hector DeLuca and Richard Davidson, and meet them after their presentations. Businesses with current and ongoing relationships with UW–Madison will speak during the Corporate Partnership Showcase Panel about why their partnerships with UW–Madison are a critical part of their business strategy.

Tom Gentile, president and CEO of GE Healthcare Systems, will headline the keynote session. He will share his perspective on collaboration and partnerships with UW–Madison and how working with the UW is shaping the future of health care and expanding the Wisconsin Idea.

Participants will have the chance to get their photos taken with Bucky Badger at the end-of-day reception, where one registered attendee will win a pair of UW football tickets from UW Athletics.

The Corporate Open House is cosponsored by the UW–Madison Office of Corporate Relations and the University of Wisconsin Foundation, Corporate and Foundation Relations.
