In just four years, this unique initiative has funded more than 200 research and outreach projects across three campuses and four priority areas.

The Dairy Innovation Hub, which launched in 2019, is supported by a $7.8M annual state investment to drive research and development across the UW–Madison, UW–Platteville, and UW–River Falls campuses, ensuring that Wisconsin’s $45.6 billion dairy community remains a global pacesetter in producing nutritious dairy products. This is all accomplished with a keen focus on economic, environmental, and social sustainability.
