Commercialization, investment efforts combine for strong fiscal 2013-14

With strong results from the technology commercialization and investment teams, WARF's fiscal 2013-14 performance promises to enhance the university's research enterprise and sustain its competitive edge in years to come.

WARF shares patent and licensing royalties with UW–Madison inventors and the university to continue the cycle of innovation. We also return a portion of our investment portfolio to the university each year. 

Among the highlights from operations for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2014:

Financial Performance:
  • Total revenue from royalties and licensing — $43.4 million.
  • Net income from investment portfolio — $318.7 million.
Support:
  • Total grants to UW–Madison — $59.3 million.
  • Inventor shares paid to UW–Madison inventors — $11.5 million.
  • Grant to the Morgridge Institute for Research — $14.3 million.
