Two Hoosier colleges have been recognized on the National Academy of Inventors and Intellectual Property Owners Association’s list of the top utility-earning universities in 2018. The Purdue Research Foundation ranks 12th, while the Indiana University Research and Technology Corp. ranks 63rd.

The rankings are compiled according to data from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

“Being granted more than 100 U.S. patents for four straight years is an indication of how Purdue’s researchers, staff and students have stepped up to meet the challenge Mitch Daniels posed when he became university president in 2013 for Purdue to move its innovations to the public where they can help people,” said Brooke Beier, vice president of the Office of Technology Commercialization at Purdue, in a news release. “Our team works diligently with Purdue innovators to protect Purdue’s intellectual property and move the technologies to market.”
