We also facilitate appropriate agreements with industry to protect intellectual property, advance SBIR/STTR programs, and advance UW-Stout technologies from development through licensing. The UW-Stout Manufacturing Outreach Center (MOC) recognizes that individual organizations are one of a kind and works side-by-side with industry leaders to find reliable, informed answers and customized solutions to the challenges they face. Throughout 33 northwestern Wisconsin counties, the MOC delivers services tailored to specific circumstances. From process improvement to strategic direction, workforce training to technology implementation and so much more. The UW-Stout MOC was established 25 years ago as part of the 1994 Federal Technology Project with the National Institute of Standards and Technology/ Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (NIST MEP) as its statutory funding source. Formed as a partnership between UW-Stout and regional technical colleges, the MOC is headquartered within the Discovery Center. Since its inception, the MOC has helped to create and save over 5,500 state manufacturing jobs with client-reported impacts of almost $800 million.
