Pitt has broken the record again!  Pitt rose to No. 21 — up from 27th last year and 35th in 2015 — among the top universities worldwide to be granted U.S. utility patents for a new or improved product, process or machine.   23 companies were also spun out of Pitt in FY18, adding up to a new University record — for the third year in a row. FY17 saw 15 startups and FY16 had 13.

University of Pittsburgh Innovation ShowcaseThis is your opportunity to explore some of these latest Pitt innovations.  The Innovation Showcase is October 17, 2018!  

The University of Pittsburgh Innovation Institute is proud to invite you to meet our inspiring faculty and student innovators and see their innovations in areas such as healthcare, materials, IoT, IT, analytics, energy and more at the annual Innovation Showcase.

Several of the showcased innovations will be the best of the Michael G. Wells Student Healthcare Competition and the new Kuzneski Innovation Cup – winners to be announced that day.

We will be serving signature cocktails while you network with innovators, researchers, Pitt faculty, students, and industry experts.

Many of these technologies are available for licensing, and others already form the basis of local, early-stage Pitt spinoff companies.

Thank you to our sponsor!!
