Just saw this posted by Forbes -

Apparently UF does pretty well at “formal commercialization and tech transfer of intellectual property, we use invention disclosures, the number of licenses and options, licensing income and startups formed; less formalized modes include citations of university articles contained in patents granted to firms. This demonstrates the value of academic research in the private sector.” They adjust for the size of research budgets so the analysis was fairly even.

The name at the top of the list probably won’t surprise – Carnegie Mellon University in Pennsylvania.

But it’s the name in the second spot on this list that may an eyebrow – The University of Florida. The school reached this lofty post, the paper found, despite having a research budget ranked just 29th.

If we can be ranked #2 while 29th in budget, then we clearly need to move these people over to replace the fooley cronies.

From the internets...
"Carnegie Mellon is a marketplace powerhouse of computing, engineering and hard core science. It’s every bit the peer of places such as MIT and Cal Tech, perhaps even a notch or two higher. Or at least so thinks Heartland Forward - MIT was number 11, tied with Purdue University; Cal Tech was a very respectable 19.

But it’s the name in the second spot on this list that may an eyebrow – The University of Florida. The school reached this lofty post, the paper found, despite having a research budget ranked just 29th. Though, if we’re looking at what a school did with their money, Carnegie Mellon’s research budget was ranked 59th in the study. So, pretty impressive on both counts.

Rounding out the top five on the list are some other names you know: Columbia, Stanford and Harvard. That’s some rare air for the University of Florida and they are understandably pretty excited.

David Norton, vice president for research at the University said, “UF has a long and successful history in technology transfer, committed to getting better every year. Our tech licensing and start-up incubation enterprise is staffed by knowledgeable professionals who provide best-in-class support and expertise to our faculty, so that they can focus on their science and on solving problems.” And, he said, “When those solutions are ready to move out of the lab and into the world, our team is there to nurture them, driving economic development and realizing tangible impacts from our groundbreaking research.”

It seems so.

The Gators weren’t the only public school doing well at moving research to technology to product. Also, in the top 10 are: North Carolina State at number seven, two University of California schools - San Diego and Los Angeles - at eight and nine. And the University of Minnesota at ten."

So, apparently, UF got a "cease & desist" order on recruiting.?
