Foreign students are cooking up a storm at US universities leading cutting-edge innovation, and are behind an overwhelming number of patents for new inventions, a new study said Tuesday.
"More than three out of every four patents at the top 10 patent-producing US universities (76 percent) had at least one foreign-born inventor," said the report "Patent Pending: How Immigrants Are Reinventing The American Economy."
The study came from "The Partnership for a New American Economy" bringing together over 450 Republican, Democratic and independent business leaders.
