The Global Innovation Index (GII) is published by Cornell University, INSEAD, and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).

It is now in its sixth edition.

This index recognizes the key role of innovation as a driver of economic growth and prosperity and acknowledges the need for a broad horizontal vision of innovation that is applicable to both developed and emerging economies, with the inclusion of indicators that go beyond the traditional measures of innovation (such as the level of research and development in a given country).

The innovation index 2013 looked at 142 economies around the world, using 84 indicators including the quality of top universities, availability of microfinance, venture capital deals – gauging both innovation capabilities and measurable results.

WIPO Director General Francis Gurry said dynamic innovation hubs are multiplying around the world despite the difficult state of the global economy.

“These hubs leverage local advantages with a global outlook on markets and talent,” he added.

Gurry noted that this year the WIPO’s innovation report and index had a special focus on local dynamics of innovation “an area which has remained under-measured globally.”

It measures economic inventiveness and the ability to reform and remain globally competitive.

Mauritius, South Africa and Uganda emerged the most innovative nations in Sub-Saharan Africa out of 142 innovative nations in the Global Innovative Index 2013 presented at the United Nations, conference Hall, Geneval, on July 1
