International Survey of Engineering Faculty & Administration Trends in Invention Disclosure Report FilingsThis all-new report Trends in Invention Disclosure Report Filings: International Survey of Engineering Faculty & Administration includes comprehensive data compiled from leaders of 50 top engineering programs

This one-of-a-kind resource provides a rich set of benchmarks and data to compare your program’s invention disclosure filings with 50 university engineering programs worldwide. With this all-new report you’ll find detailed data on the percentage of faculty and staff who have ever filed an invention disclosure report, the number filed in the past two years, and the expected number of filings in the next two years. Trends in Invention Disclosure Report Filings also presents data on the catalyst for invention disclosure report filings, pinpointing influences such as professors and colleagues, technology transfer administrators, and other influencers. This study is jam-packed with dozens of easy-to-scan charts and figures displaying critical data you can’t find in any other publication.  

A one-of-a-kind source of specialized survey data and benchmarks from over 180 faculty and administrators in the world’s top 50 engineering programs

Trends in Invention Disclosure Report Filings includes 60-pages of in-depth commentary and analysis based on extensive surveying of 50 colleges and universities. You’ll also find scores of data points in over 44 tables helping readers answer questions such as:  

  • How does the level of invention disclosure activity in mechanical engineering compare to biomedical engineering?
  • How do non-USA programs compare to USA programs?
  • What is the level of activity of male vs. female researchers?
  • How many invention disclosures were filed in the past two years?
  • How about professors vs. associate and assistant professors, or staff engineers?
  • Who had the most influence on the decision to file an invention disclosure?

You’ll get survey data on these questions and much more – detailed in over 44 easy-to-scan tables

Take a look at just a few of the findings you’ll see in Trends in Invention Disclosure Report Filings:

  • It was nearly three times more likely for survey participants in the USA to have filed an invention disclosure report than those from other countries, predominantly the UK, Australia, NZ and Canada.
  • Female researchers were much more likely than men to be self-motivated and much less likely to be acting on the urging of a colleague or a university official when filing an invention disclosure report.
  • The submission of invention disclosure reports peaked in the 50-59 year-old age group.
  • Academic department chairs and distinguished professors are the most critical of their university’s efforts to publicize research achievements, 16.42% saying that their university does a poor job at this.

Data in the report is broken out by engineering program rank, title of survey participant, field of engineering, age, gender, and salary level of the survey participant and along with other variables.
