Global Innovation Index 2022 Launch

The Global Innovation Index (GII), published by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in partnership with the Portulans Institute, ranks the innovation ecosystem performance of economies around the globe while highlighting innovation strengths and weaknesses and particular gaps in innovation metrics.

Theme: What is the future of innovation-driven growth?

This year’s GII focuses on the effect of innovation on productivity and wellbeing of society over the coming decades.

The report addresses the following question: Is stagnation and low productivity growth here to stay, or are we about to enter a new era, where new innovation spurts – the Digital Age and the Deep Science Innovation waves – bring about an economic uplift?
