MADISON — Foxconn Technology Group announced Monday it will invest $100 million in the University of Wisconsin-Madison, including funding to help establish a new interdisciplinary research facility for the College of Engineering that will collaborate with the company’s facilities in southeast Wisconsin.

Foxconn Chairman and founder Terry Gou was on campus to make the announcement alongside UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank, who committed to privately raising another $100 million toward the new interdisciplinary enterprise.

Foxconn's $100 million gift is among the largest in the university's history and will include money to fast-track a new engineering building that has only been on the long-range drawing board until now.
