Stout Technology Transfer Institute

Transferring Technology and Campus Resources for Industry Success

Increasing competitiveness in world markets puts a higher premium than ever on efficiency and innovation. Yet, small manufacturers often do not have the ability to apply innovative technology at levels competitive with larger corporations or foreign countries. Cooperative ventures between industry and the university are advantageous to everyone involved because they:

  • Allow for pooling of the best technology
  • Enable companies to take on projects beyond their individual risk threshold or resource capability
  • Foster an exchange of views, new perspectives and a broader vision to the solution of problems

The UW-Stout Technology Transfer Institute (STTI) was established to promote technology transfer between UW-Stout and industry. As a unit within UW-Stout's Discovery Center, the institute draws on the university's impressive technical resources, including the expertise of its faculty, staff and students, and its well-equipped and diversified laboratories. These resources are made accessible to industry through STTI's technical centers.

The Discovery Center serves to advance UW-Stout's polytechnic focus through applied research with a commitment to quality and innovation, transformative education, and interdisciplinary collaboration.
