The GII has established itself as a leading reference on innovation and a valuable bench-marking tool for decision-makers. Co-published by WIPO, Cornell University and INSEAD, the report provides an annual ranking of the innovation capabilities and performance of economies around the world.
Innovation plays a key role as a driver of economic growth and prosperity. The GII seeks to improve the way innovation is measured and understood. It recognizes the need for a broad vision of innovation, applicable to developed and emerging economies alike, and includes indicators that go beyond traditional measures of innovation, such as the level of research and development.
