|Global Innovation Index 2012 Edition|
INSEAD and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO, a specialized agency of the United Nations) co-publish The Global Innovation Index (GII) since 2012. This year in its fifth edition, the GII was previously published by INSEAD. The GII 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 GII has evolved into a valuable benchmarking tool to facilitate public-private dialogue, whereby policymakers, business leaders and other stakeholders can evaluate progress on a continual basis.

In 2011, an Advisory Board was set up. The Advisory Board is a select group of international practitioners and experts who bring unique knowledge and skills in the realm of innovation. Its members, while coming from diverse geographical and institutional backgrounds (IOs, public sector, NGOs, business and academia); participate in his or her personal capacity. The primary role of the Advisory Board is to advise on the research underlying the GII and assist as appropriate with the dissemination of the GII messages and results. We are privileged to have the following members:
|Auditing Report by the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission|
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission has researched extensively on the complexity of composite indicators ranking countries' performances along policy lines. Since 2011, the JRC supports the research to ensure the overall conceptual and statistical coherence of the GII framework, and performs a robustness and sensitivity analysis of the final rankings. The JRC has researched extensively on composite indicators and has developed, jointly with the OECD, the Handbook on constructing composite indicators (2008), with the state-of-the art in this area. For additional information, click on the JRC information server on composite indicators, here.
The Audit Report by the JRC on the GII is available here and The JRC headline news on the GII is available here.
