Call for proposals: Dairy Innovation Hub seeking applications for short-term, high-impact projects

NOTE: An error was discovered in the budget worksheet template. The link below has been corrected. 

The college is accepting proposals for short-term, high-impact research and outreach projects that will leverage existing UW–Madison expertise to provide timely products supporting the goals of the Dairy Innovation Hub, with an emphasis on addressing recommendations generated by the Dairy Task Force 2.0.

As plans for the Dairy Innovation Hub were finalized, the state’s Dairy Task Force 2.0 committee was completing their work. In its first year, the Hub would like to address relevant recommendations approved by the Dairy Task Force 2.0. Short-term, high-impact projects that will return immediate benefit to the dairy industry, despite not being directly linked to the Task Force 2.0 recommendations, will also be considered.

Proposals are due February 17, 2020 via WISPR submission and award decisions will be made in May.

The Dairy Innovation Hub is a $7.8 million per year investment by the State of Wisconsin in UW System agricultural programs to build a world-class talent pool and enable bold discoveries to ensure that Wisconsin’s dairy industry will be at the forefront in producing nutritious dairy products in an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable manner.
