Global Innovation Index 2016


The Global Innovation Index 2016 (GII), in its 9th edition this year, is co-published by Cornell University, INSEAD, and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO, an agency of the United Nations, UN). IMP³rove - European Innovation Management Academy contributes as knowledge partner.

The Global Innovation Index (GII) is used as a tool for reviewing and supporting various innovation policies and their claims to effectiveness. The index aims to capture the many facets of innovation, including policies that promote long-term growth, increase job prospects, and improve productivity.

The index covers 128 economies around the world and uses 82 country-level indicators across a range of themes. It complements to the company-level innovation-capability database of IMP³rove - European Innovation Management Academy.

IMP³rove contributed to a chapter of the Global Innovation Index based on a survey with executives on "The Management of Global Innovation: Business expectations for 2020". The study shows that many business leaders expect a shift in innovation paradigms which requires a profound organizational change.
