Dartmouth Makes NAI’s Top 100 List for U.S. Patents

National Academy of Inventors’ report ranks universities worldwide by the number of utility patents granted.

Dartmouth is on the National Academy of Inventors’ top 100 list of universities worldwide granted U.S. patents in 2016, marking the fifth consecutive time the College has made the top 100 since the list was launched in 2012.

The report, which is published by the National Academy of Inventors (NAI) and Intellectual Property Owners Association (IPO), uses data on utility patents issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to highlight the important role patents play in university research and innovation. Dartmouth is one of six Ivy League schools on the list.

“For such a small school to have a place on this list shows that our faculty engage with pressing problems, they are coming up with attractive solutions, and they are committed to moving those solutions into the real world,” says Dean Madden, Dartmouth’s vice provost for research.
