WAUWATOSA — Emerging technologies will be highlighted during a “First Look” forum held by the Wisconsin Innovation Network’s Milwaukee chapter in Wauwatosa on Dec. 10.

Four examples of research innovation from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee will be on display. The event is a showcase for emerging technologies that may be featured before the companies launch or crack into the marketplace, according to the announcement.

Community members who attend the forum will learn about the work taking place at UW-Milwaukee, as well as a chance for UWM researchers to get feedback from business leaders, investors and entrepreneurs on how to guide these technologies to market.

The event will take place at UW-Milwaukee’s Innovation Accelerator, 1225 Discovery Parkway. Registration, networking and hors d’oeuvres start at 4:30 p.m., with presentations beginning at 5:30 p.m. The cost is $10 for students, $25 for WIN members and Milwaukee County Research Park tenants, $35 for non-members and included for WIN corporate members.
