Lumenci conducted research across worldwide universities to better understand the quality of patent assets; and identify key trends, technology areas and markets where the next wave of monetization of IP can come from.  The Technology Transfer trends of 2019, show an increasingly high number of patent applications on behalf of universities in key technology areas and an overview of high impact areas towards technology commercialization.  

China stands at the top of University patent publications, thanks to the Government subsidies and updates in Patent Policy. The impact is so large that Zheijiang University, the top player in China, has 8 times the number of publications as compared to University of California, the top player in the United States.
