UAA's patent portfolio has dramatically increased since FY11, including the launch of startup companies--one of which was awarded a "Best University Startup" in a national competition. To encourage innovation, UAA established the "Patent Wall of Fame" and organized and hosted the first World IP Day in Alaska.
