The annual UTSA Innovation Awards recognize Innovation Excellence in the UTSA research community. These annual awards will be presented in four categories, and are the lead indicators of UTSA’s success at commercializing innovations.
The first category recognizes recipients of issued patents. Patent awardees are presented with a plaque listing the cover page of their patent.
The second category is for licensing revenue. Innovators with optioned or licensed technology that is generating returns for the university are recognized.
The third category is for the recognition of faculty, staff, students, and team mentors who have participated in the National Science Foundation I-Corps program.
The final category is for the Innovator of the Year Award. The award recipient will be presented with a trophy recognizing the highest innovation impact based on technology disclosures, patent filings, issued patents, and licenses signed in the previous fiscal year.
