Dairy Innovation Hub to host Dairy Symposium on May 15

The Dairy Innovation Hub will hold its annual Dairy Symposium on May 15 at Memorial Union.

The Dairy Symposium features the Dairy Innovation Hub’s most advanced research from all participating campuses and is geared toward an academic audience and anyone looking for a deeper dive into research. Attendees will hear thought-provoking plenary sessions, research talks from each of the Hub’s four priority areas, shorter “flash talks” from students, and poster presentations from Hub-funded researchers. This is an in-person opportunity at the Memorial Union, and recordings will be available after the live event on the Hub’s YouTube channel.

Hub events are free and open to the public. Pre-registration is required.

Register for Dairy Symposium.


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

The Dairy Innovation Hub, funded through a $7.8 million per year investment by the state of Wisconsin, harnesses research and development across the UW–MadisonUW–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.
