Penn ranks first in licensing income
Penn officially ranked number one in terms of licensing income in the latest Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM) annual survey, which included 153 reporting institutions.
For context, Penn’s gross licensing income numbers were more than double that of the next largest contributor, which was the entire University of California system.
This is a huge milestone for PCI, Penn, and Philadelphia’s innovation ecosystem.
“These results, and all the other equally important indicators of Penn’s success, are a direct result of the exceptional research, development, and innovative breakthroughs made by the University’s world-class faculty and research community,” notes John Swartley, PhD, MBA, Associate Vice Provost for Research and Managing Director for the Penn Center for Innovation (PCI).
