Top university patent producers-UC,MIT,UW

<p>Seven universities, led by the University of California system, were among the 300 organizations awarded the most United States patents in 2009, according to a compilation by the Intellectual Property Owners Association. The 10-campus UC system ranked 83rd on the list, with 251 patents. It was followed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (ranked 153rd, with 134 patents), the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, which manages patents for the University of Wisconsin at Madison (173rd, with 115 patents), Stanford University (178th, with 110 patents), the University of Texas (191st, with 98 patents), the California Institute of Technology (198th, with 93 patents), and the University of Illinois (266th, with 65 patents). The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office ceased compiling rankings three years ago to avoid the perception that it was endorsing the theory that more patents were better, but the association said such a list is at least one objective measure of the patent system.</p>

<p>Is it possible to get the list of top 50 universities? with most patent producers in 2008 or 2009?</p>

TweedIt's Gotta Be the ShoesFirst PersonHiring For TwoArchitectureOut With the Old</p>

<p>Anyone want to create a ranking based on US patent issued from the above list?</p>

<p>except the UC system is bunched into one instead of separate schools</p>

<p>Yes, the UC system as tens of thousands of students, MIT and NU a tiny fraction of that. These lists are just stupid.</p>

<p>The students are not getting patents-it's the faculty of course. Yes lumping all UC and UT into one distorts the numbers but you can still get an idea who the leaders are and are not.</p>

<p>Top 10 based on 2008 data Provided by barrons</p>

<p>Schoola: Number of Patents Issued</p>

<ol>
<li> UC system: 224</li>
<li> MIT: 140</li>
<li> Stanford 134</li>

<p>Didn't see Princeton on barrons' list.</p>

UC Berkeley alone probably would be in the top 10.</p>

<p>UC Patent Portfolio as of June 30, 2009:
San Francisco: 744
San Diego: 611
Los Angeles: 581
Berkeley: 569
Davis: 414
Santa Barbara: 325
Irvine: 267
Riverside: 84
Santa Cruz: 72
Merced: 0</p>

<p>Total Licensing Income by Campus as of June 30, 2009:
San Francisco: $32,867,000
Los Angeles: $29,215,000
San Diego: $26,631,000
Davis: $10,849,000
Berkeley: $7,202,000

Santa Barbara: $5,010,000
Riverside: $2,502,000
Santa Cruz: $320,000
Merced: $63,000</p>

<p>Medical schools are the biggest contributers.</p>

<p>^^ Happen to know the numbers issued last year by individual campus?</p>

<p>Professor, the report didn't say.</p>

<p>I'm thinking number of profs correlates with number of students.</p>

I am surprised that UCSD is so strong in this area.</p>

<p>^ It has world class biological programs and medical school.</p>

<p>The top 3 are/have medical schools.</p>

<p>Davis has numerous agricultural and veterinary patents. Each campus plays to its strengths.</p>

Schools like MIT, Stanford, CalTech and JHU have a relatively small UG population, but have a huge research faculty.</p>

<p>anyone want to create a list of top 50 based on US patent issued?</p>
