TAMPA, Fla., April 26, 2023 — In celebration of “World Intellectual Property Day,” the National Academy of Inventors (NAI) has released its annual list of the Top 100 worldwide university U.S. utility patent holders. The Academy has released the rankings based on calendar year data provided by the United States Patent and Trademark Office since 2013.

Kathi Vidal, Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office commented: “As we celebrate World IP Day, I am so pleased to see this evidence of the global impact of research and innovation conducted at academic institutions around the globe. On this special day, we at the USPTO pledge to do all we can to maintain a strong intellectual property system at home and worldwide.”

“Throughout its existence, the National Academy of Inventors has sought to quantify with hard data the vital role research and patented technology developed at academic institutions play in our society,” Dr. Paul Sanberg, President of the Academy, noted. “Nothing we do more clearly illustrates that point than this annual report. We will continue to seek other ways to reinforce that message. I will announce the next steps during our Annual Meeting in Washington DC, June 25-27.”

The National Academy of Inventors is a member organization comprising U.S. and international universities, and governmental and non-profit research institutes, with over 4,000 individual inventor members and Fellows spanning more than 250 institutions worldwide. It was founded in 2010 to recognize and encourage inventors with patents issued by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), enhance the visibility of academic technology and innovation, encourage the disclosure of intellectual property, educate and mentor innovative students, and translate the inventions of its members to benefit society.
