The National Academy of Inventors (NAI) and the Intellectual Property Owners Association (IPO) have just released their annual Top 100 Worldwide Universities Granted U.S. Utility Patents for the year 2015. The report uses USPTO data to rank universities based on utility patents issued and highlight the important role patents play in university research and innovation.

The NAI and IPO have published the report annually since 2013. The full report can be downloaded here.

“The rate at which our universities are producing groundbreaking technologies is growing faster than ever and it is an honor to recognize these institutions for their amazing work,” said Paul R. Sanberg, president of the NAI. “We thank the IPO for collaborating with the NAI for the fourth year in a row on this ranking, which confirms the importance of supporting research and innovation within academia.”

Here is this year’s top 10: The University of California System, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, The University of Texas, Tsinghua University (China), California Institute of Technology, Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF), Johns Hopkins University, Columbia University, and University of Michigan.

“IPO is proud to once again release this important report with the NAI to highlight the tremendous work in patents being done at universities,” said IPO Executive Director, Mark W. Lauroesch. “Inventive ecosystems continue to grow around universities, sparking a culture in which academics and innovation go hand-in-hand producing technologies which stimulate not only local and regional economies but the global economy.”
