CU-Boulder among the nation’s leaders in patent power

IEEE Spectrum’s annual U.S. patent scorecard analysis—2010 Patent Power—reviewed more than 1,000 world organizations to find out who owns the most influential patent portfolios. According to Spectrum, the analytic methodology “goes beyond patent counts to emphasize how frequently a company’s patents are cited by other patents.”

Researchers and inventors build on each other’s work to promote the progress of science. In the category of Universities/Education/Training, the University of Colorado ranked 14th, immediately behind Stanford and MIT.
