The MIDD is supporting research projects at UWM, local Institutions and Universities and private and non-profit companies. Each project follows a tailored research plan taking advantage of the capabilities provided by the MIDD Research Centers. The MIDD supports internal and extramural funding applications and initiates collaborations with the private sector. Direct support by the MIDD will be granted to enable quick progression of milestones or preliminary data for grant applications. MIDD members have authored 274 journal or technical report articles since inception in 2011. In addition, several hundred presentations (posters or talks) by faculty or students were delivered at national and international scientific meetings.
