As the primary anchor to the Park, WISCORC will support industries in developing and adapting new bio-based technologies and products, accelerate the development of new, renewably-sourced products, and provide much-needed open and secure experimental and research spaces for existing businesses. Businesses in harvesting and transportation; processing and pulping; producing paper, wood products, feed and food; packaging and distribution; and related industries can utilize WISCORC’s services and resources, including:

  • Direct support to Wisconsin’s pulp, paper, agriculture, and related industries
  • Acceleration services to commercialize biomass research and new ag-based products
  • Affordable and energetic collaborative space, flex space, makerspace, laboratories, and shared office space/administrative services for businesses that locate in the Park
  • Workforce training and skill advancement opportunities

WISCORC will occupy space in the R&D and administrative building at the entrance to the Park. Seed funding of $100,000 has been provided by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation to develop a business plan and operations structure, with phase I projected to open in 2016.
