NSF Patent Tracker demonstrated the impact of NSF (National Science Foundation) supported research by patent metrics.
Patents granted by USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) from 2007 to 2013 were studied and linked to NSF research grants from 1994 to 2014. The application provides an easy way to see trend and timeline of NSF related patents. A user can drill down to see the inventions filtered by universities and scientists, down to the level of actual patent and grant. Full text search capability is provided through Google custom search.
This app is produced by Code for NoVA, a Code for America brigade.
