The AUTM Licensing Activity Survey offers quantitative data and real-world examples about licensing activities at U.S. and Canadian universities, hospitals and research institutions.

You can view the fiscal year 2014 (FY2014) data online via STATT (Statistics Access for Tech Transfer).

All members whose institutions participated in the FY2014 survey receive a free annual subscription to STATT. Members from nonparticipating institutions can purchase an annual subscription of STATT for $100. The annual subscription fee for nonmembers is $450.
