On November 20th of this year M-WERC will unveil the next chapter in its evolution at its annual Technology Symposium. The Technology Innovation event will present an early view of a shift in our Technology Innovation process and thinking. This evolutionary move follows both the anticipated maturing of the Technology and Innovation path outlined in the original Strategic Plan as well as feedback from our highly engaged member community.
The Nov 20th M-WERC Technology Symposium at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee will present six updates from our Principal Investigations for the latest round of Research Projects; a view of the UW-Milwaukee Technology Vision; a preview of our new technology innovation process shifting M-WERC from an event driven project group RFP to a technology program pipeline (project cycle); a preview of a new Technology Roadmap process, and early roadmap output designed to interlock with the new Tech Pipeline.
In addition we are negotiating with one to two external speakers who can further amplify the Tech Pipeline approach and how it can accelerate our engagement with external technology partners. More to come shortly on our speaker choices.
We at M-WERC are confident that with the help of our members and communities we can take this next evolutionary step and accelerate our path forward. Our leadership team invites you to mark Nov 20th on your calendars and we look forward to an exciting Technical Symposium and an exciting "next chapter."
