About the Essential Topics Series

In 2012, WARF launched its Essential Topics Series to share timely information on campus. Presentations have included former U.S. patent commissioner Robert Stoll discussing the America Invents Act; a roundtable on technology ventures featuring SBA leader and UW–Madison grad Winslow Sargeant; and UW–Madison physics professor Sau Lan Wu's description of the July 4, 2012, discovery of the Higgs particle at CERN. Videos of some of the previous Essential Topics lectures are available at www.discovery.wisc.edu.
