CHICAGO -- A major source of information for visitors to the Wisconsin pavilion at the 2010 BIO International Convention is "Wisconsin Edge," a magazine-style publication produced by the Wisconsin Technology Council.
The 12-page magazine includes information on the state's technology profile, not only in biotechnology, but in other sectors such as medical devices, information technology and more. It describes the state's research and development assets, including the $1.2 billion in academic R&D conducted in fiscal 2008 at Wisconsin colleges and universities. The magazine also describes the relationship between interlocking research disciplines, and defines the "I-Q Corridor," a larger region that spans Chicago, Wisconsin and the Twin Cities in Minnesota.
The "I" in I-Q Corridor stands for interstate, innovation, intellectual property and investment, and the "Q" suggests the quality of the region's companies, workers and research.
"We wanted a single publication that introduces Wisconsin to those who want to know more about its tech-based economy," said Mark Bugher, chairman of the Tech Council. "Wisconsin Edge is a 'calling card' that serves that purpose well."
The magazine's resource guide gives readers key contacts for economic development in Wisconsin. To obtain copies, contact Gina Leahy at the Tech Council at firstname.lastname@example.org
