Driving the Innovation Economy
AUTM partnered with BIO to report on the economic contribution of academic patents. The study documents the sizeable return that US taxpayers receive on their investment in federally-funded research.

AUTM Licensing Activity Survey
Each year, AUTM conducts its Licensing Activity Survey to collect detailed information on research funding, the impact on innovation, patent activity, licensing income, and the number of startups, as reported by AUTM members. If you want to take a deep dive, you can request copies of AUTM’s Licensing Activity Survey data and/or guest access to STATT — a searchable, exportable database of more than 30 years of academic licensing data collected by AUTM from participating academic institutions.
