Global Innovation Index (GII) 2019

Creating Healthy Lives — The Future of Medical Innovation




For over a decade, INSEAD has been involved in the design, publication and dissemination of global composite indices, in collaboration with prestigious partners such as the World Economic Forum, the World Bank, the World Intellectual Property Organization, the Confederation of Indian Industries, and more recently Cornell University and the Human Capital Leadership Institute of Singapore. Large global companies have also been part of this effort, including Cisco, Alcatel-Lucent, Intel, Booz and Co, and more recently Huawei, Du, Adecco Group AG and Tata Communications.

The Network Readiness Index, focused on global information technology and in existence since 2001, and the Global Innovation Index, first issued in 2007, have both gained the status of recognized international benchmarks in their respective fields. The third one, the Global Talent Competitiveness Index was launched on 26 November 2013.

Although these indices attract worldwide attention through their annual rankings of countries, their common objective is to be used as policy instruments and practical tools to enhance the quality and impact of private and public decisions in the vital and interconnected fields of technology, innovation and human resources.
