The WiSys Technology Advancement Grant (WiTAG) is a research grant program aimed at funding applied research with Intellectual Property (IP) potential at the UW System campuses. The program offers a funding for up to a three-year period.  Funding available for any given project is dependent upon the project's scope. UW-Madison and UW-Milwaukee researchers are not eligible for WiTAG awards. Intellectual property created using WiTAG funding must be assigned to WiSys.
