University of Wisconsin–Madison

Celebrating creativity across our campus


At the University of Wisconsin-Madison, innovation is a way of life. Iteration, improvement and transformation are integral to what we as creators and innovators do. In our classrooms, in our research laboratories and even in our spare time, we are creating knowledge, processes and products that help make our lives comfortable and safe, that contribute to a more prosperous society, and yield a more sustainable world for us all.

In the spring of every year, we host a multi-day multi-school and college celebration of innovation, showcasing a variety of competitions you can participate in and events you can attend—all of which are designed to pique your curiosity, ignite the spark of creativity, and provide paths along which you can pursue innovative ideas of your own.
