Global Innovation Index 2022

Join us live today, Thursday, September 29, 2022, from 13:30 to 16:15 p.m. CEST, for the global launch of the 15th edition of the Global Innovation Index (GII). This edition provides a perspective on the current global innovation climate against the background of an ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, slowing productivity growth and other evolving challenges.

In addition to the annual rankings on economies’ innovation ecosystem performance, the GII 2022 thematic focus on the future of innovation-driven growth will address 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?

Ministers and Heads of States have been invited to make special addresses, while investors, business leaders from DuPont, Huawei, Jumia, Newlab and Softtek, renowned scientists and academics from EPFL, Oxford University, Technical University of Munich (just to name a few), and representatives from the German Ethics Council, the United States Census Bureau and the UN Economic Commission for Africa will address two panel discussions chaired by WIPO’s Director General Daren Tang and Soumitra Dutta, Dean of Saïd Business School at Oxford University and closing remarks by Assistant Director General Marco Alemán.
