Created in 2007 by Prof. Soumitra Dutta (Oxford University), the Global Innovation Index (GII) is the primary reference for measuring a country’s innovation performance.
The GII provides detailed metrics on innovation performance using approximately 80 indicators for almost 130 economies, thus covering 93% of the world’s population and 98% of global GDP. The GII is a tool for action and has established itself as a central policy tool for innovation around the world.
The GII is published by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), a specialized agency of the United Nations, in association with the Portulans Institute. Moving into its 14th edition this year, the GII has evolved into a valuable benchmarking tool that facilitates public-private dialogue and that helps policymakers, business leaders, and other stakeholders to evaluate their innovation progress on an annual basis.
Established in 2011, the GII’s Corporate Network Partners are corporations or trade associations that believe in the role of innovation in increasing the competitiveness of nations, enabling economic growth, driving societal changes, and building the foundation of an economy’s future. They are the core funders of the GII and related network activities. Starting in 2021, the GII’s Corporate Partner are hosted and supported by the Portulans Institute. We are grateful for the invaluable support we receive from our Corporate Partners – the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and the National Confederation of Industry Brazil (CNI).

Numerous countries have incorporated the GII data and analysis into their innovation agenda and metrics. The GII is also regularly featured at various high-level global policy events. It is referred to by world leaders including the Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, Indian Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi, Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven and Việt Nam Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc in prestigious geopolitical addresses.
The GII is equally well received by industry, academia, and the media. Since the launch of the GII’s 14th edition in 2020, the report has been downloaded over 160,000 times, cited on Google Scholar more than 3,000 times and has been covered in 1,800 different media outlets by major global publications and broadcasters, including BBC Radio, The Economist, La Tribune, Le Temps, Deutsche Welle, Times of India, Nikkei,Manila Bulletin, Singapore’s Business Times, The Washington Post, the Financial Times and many more.
In collaboration with our Corporate Network Partner CNI, and in line with MEI advocacy for innovation-oriented public and corporate policies in Brazil, the Portulans Institute is excited to present the landmark report titled “Supporting Brazil’s Future Readiness: An Innovation, Technology and Talent Readiness Roadmap”. This report uses the Future Readiness Evaluation Approach (FREA) model to generate recommendations for improving Brazil’s competitiveness in innovation, technology and talent (the ‘ITT’ triangle).
It is based on indicators from three influential global reports: the Network Readiness Index, the Global Talent and Competitiveness Index and the Global Innovation Index. CNI and the Portulans Institute hope this contribution will spark productive discussions about how to improve Brazil’s future readiness. We encourage individuals and organizations from the private sector, academia, civil society and government to take advantage of this report’s conclusions.
