Innovative ideas that stretch from rich farmlands to high-tech medical and computer labs have again landed the University of Nebraska System among the world’s leading academic institutions for earning U.S. patents.
A recently released report from the National Academy of Inventors ranks the NU System in a two-way tie for No. 78 in the world, with 45 patents earned in 2022. This marks the sixth straight year Nebraska has been included in the top 100.
“To again be in the company of the world’s best universities is further confirmation of the quality of our faculty, the ingenuity of their ideas and the great power of our combined talents,” NU System President Ted Carter said. “I’m deeply proud of the work the University of Nebraska’s faculty, staff and students are doing every day to change lives and strengthen the economy in Nebraska and beyond.”
