Proposals to share Dairy Innovation Hub-funded research at the Dairy Symposium due Mar. 8

The Dairy Innovation Hub is hosting the 3rd annual Dairy Symposium event on Wednesday, May 15, at the Memorial Union. This day-long event brings together academic colleagues, students and trainees from UW–Madison, UW–Platteville and UW–River Falls to share data from the Hub’s most advanced funded research.

Proposals are now being accepted for breakout sessions, posters and flash talks. All sessions will be delivered in person. Select sessions will be recorded and posted on YouTube following the event, but there will be no livestream.

Proposals should be submitted by Friday, Mar. 8. Registration for the event is also open. Visit for details.

The following opportunities are available:

  • Priority area breakout session – 20-30-minute research talk + Q/A
  • Poster – Ongoing poster session throughout the day + dedicated poster time
  • Flash talk + poster (Students and trainees only) – 3-minute research flash talk plus an accompanying poster

We welcome proposals from Hub-funded researchers, trainees and students around a broad range of topics related to: stewarding land and water resources, ensuring animal health and welfare, enriching human health and nutrition, and growing farm business and community.

Preference will be given to research directly funded by the Hub, but other relevant proposals will be considered.
