Summary/Abstract: Universities contribute to economic growth not only through teaching and research, but through engagement and collaborations with industry and other off campus entities. One way of measuring the economic effects of these activities is to examine patent data. Recent years have seen an increased use of patent metrics to evaluate innovation and research performance. Patent documents and patent data generally have several advantages as technology indicator, whereas they are accessible in electronic formats. These data provide details of inventions resulting from university research and collaboration. Sophisticated analysis enables us to examine these documents and track technological knowledge.
