Hoosier Universities Rank High For Patents

Posted: Updated:
WEST LAFAYETTE and BLOOMINGTON -

The National Academy of Inventors and Intellectual Property Owners Association's list of the top 100 worldwide universities to receive U.S. utility patents in 2017 includes two Hoosier universities. The list ranks the schools based on data from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

The Purdue Research Foundation is tied with Arizona State University for 17th place on the list. Purdue received 100 patents last year, making it the fourth consecutive year the school has been included in the top 20. Purdue's spot fell from last year, when it was ranked at number 12.

"Being ranked in the top 20 for four straight years and being granted at least 100 patents for three straight years show that we are consistently meeting the goal Purdue President Mitch Daniels set to make Purdue ‘Entrepreneur U,'" said Brooke Beier, executive director of the Purdue Office of Technology Commercialization. "The rankings show that Purdue is advancing commercialization and entrepreneurship while improving people’s lives and strengthening economic development across Indiana and the nation."

The Indiana University Research and Technology Corp. ranks 54th on the 2017 list, tied with Drexel University, Emory University and Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. IU dropped 10 spots on the list after receiving 45 patents last year.

The University of California once again tops the list, followed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Texas, Stanford University and Tsinghua University in China. You can view the full ranking below:
