UF First Among US Public Universities in Tech Transfer for Economic Return

The University of Florida ranks first among public universities and second nationwide in a new report that evaluates which U.S. universities are best at moving new discoveries from the lab and into the real world through research commercialization and STEM graduates.

The report, “Research to Renewal: Advancing University Tech Transfer,” was produced by Heartland Forward, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that describes itself as a “think and do tank focused on improving economic performance in the center of the United States.” It evaluated American universities based on their success at infusing discoveries into private industry to yield an economic return.

The metrics included invention disclosures; number of licenses and options; licensing income and startups formed; citations of university articles contained in patents granted to firms; and relative number of STEM graduates.
