Georgia Tech is proud of the work it has put in to become one of the world’s top Intellectual Property institutions. Through its world-renowned faculty, enterprising student body, and research expertise of the Georgia Tech Research Institute, Georgia Tech has become a global leader in IP creation. As such, the Institute is expanding on that leadership by creating unique academic curricula, providing IP-centered career guidance and pathways, and fostering a nationally recognized IP ecosystem in Atlanta.
“The metro Atlanta area is becoming a hub of innovation…Our goal is to provide resources to help innovators succeed here in Georgia, and to collaborate with business, industry, and government, along with our colleagues in higher education, to create a thriving innovation ecosystem…Evidence that it is working can be found in the phenomenal growth of ‘innovation neighborhoods’ such as Tech Square, Technology Enterprise Park and the North Avenue Research Area...We look forward to continued collaboration with large and small companies alike, our public and private university partners, Governor Deal, Mayor Reed, the Metro Chamber, the Georgia Department of Economic Development and others to help Atlanta become not only the premier IP capital in the Southeast, but also in the U.S.” Georgia Tech President G.P. “Bud” Peterson as quoted in Atlanta Emerging as National Leader in Intellectual Property, Atlanta Business Chronicle, (Sept. 23, 2016).
