UofSC ranks on worldwide patent list

In 2013, the university secured 29 utility patents to protect researchers’ inventions, giving them exclusive rights to make, use and market the innovative devices and processes covered by these patents for up to 20 years. Impressive as they are, these 29 patents have earned UofSC bragging rights to yet another number, 68, which is its ranking among the top 100 worldwide universities granted U.S. utility patents in 2013. This represents a significant improvement over Carolina’s 2012 ranking of 77 (with 25 patents), and paves the way for more Gamecock innovations.
