Statistics

Innovation Disclosures Heat Map

We have created interactive heat maps to show the Records of Innovation (ROIs) that have been submitted across the University since 1980. They are broken down by UW departments, schools and sectors. ROIs are used to disclose innovations to UW CoMotion. They help CoMotion protect IP, commercialize technologies, accelerate impact, and report to funding agencies on innovations.
