  • The Global Innovation Index (GII) is an annual ranking of countries by their capacity for, and success in, innovation.
  • The index was started in 2007 by INSEAD and World Business, a British magazine.
  • Now it is published by Cornell University, INSEAD, and the World Intellectual Property Organization, in partnership with other organizations and institutions.
  • It is based on both subjective and objective data derived from several sources, including the International Telecommunication Union, the World Bank and the World Economic Forum.
  • The GII is commonly used by corporate and government officials to compare countries by their level of innovation.
