Monday, July 16, 2018

The annual Global Innovation Index (GII) has released its 2018 report, leaving many wondering what the new leading concept or product is for this year. The index is released as a joint collaboration between leaders of the creative market, the University of Cornell College of Business, INSEAD business school and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) all involved in the outcome.

The index provides in-depth innovation metrics for 126 economies around the world, comprising 90.8 percent of the world’s population. According to the index, Switzerland has topped the list of innovating countries for the year – a position the country has retained since 2011. It is closely followed by the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom, all of which are ranked as high-income countries, as are the rest of the top ten.
