About the Top 100 U.S. Universities List
Launching on September 12th, 2023, the Top 100 U.S. Universities List is an annual ranking created to highlight and celebrate U.S. universities that play a large role in advancing innovation and invention in the United States. The Top 100 U.S. Universities list is meant to provide a more focused view of the national innovation landscape and the contributions made by U.S. academic institutions. The Top 100 U.S. Universities list is compiled using calendar year 2022 patent data from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
“Innovation has always been at the heart of U.S. culture and the Top 100 U.S. Universities list allows us to recognize and celebrate the commitment these universities have to the American tradition of invention and protection of IP.” – Jamie Renee, Executive Director of NAI
