The Global Innovation Index (GII) is an annual report published by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), in partnership with various institutions, including Cornell University and INSEAD. It measures and ranks the innovation capabilities and performance of countries around the world.
The GII assesses various factors related to innovation, including institutions, human capital and research, infrastructure, market sophistication, business sophistication, knowledge and technology outputs, and creative outputs. It aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of how countries foster innovation and promote economic growth.
The index considers both quantitative and qualitative data to evaluate a country's innovation landscape, including indicators such as research and development investments, patent filings, educational levels, technological achievements, and creative outputs like entertainment and software creation.
The GII is a valuable tool for policymakers, businesses, and researchers to analyse and compare the innovation ecosystems of different countries and understand the factors contributing to their innovation performances.
