The University of California was honored Tuesday as one of the world’s most innovative institutions.
In the company of multinational titans ranging from Apple to Boeing, UC was the only university honored as a 2016 Top 100 Global Innovator by Clarivate Analytics, a data and analysis company that spun off from Thomson Reuters.
It arrived at its list by assessing the volume of patents and their quality, market reach and influence on other discoveries.
UC made the list for the first time since its inception in 2011. In its report, Clarivate said UC had been particularly successful in recent years in seeing its inventions earn patents and in extending its collaborations and reach globally.
