The Italy of Innovation Climbs Two Positions in the GII
With a score of 46.6 (+0.5 compared to 2022), Italy has climbed two positions, placing itself in 26th place in the Global Innovation Index 2023 of the World Intellectual Property Organization, a specialized agency of the United Nations, founded in 1967 to encourage creative activities and promote the protection of intellectual property.
The Global Innovation Index (GII) analyzes and measures the innovation trend of 132 countries through 80 indicators, concentrated in 7 categories: business and market sophistication, infrastructure, human capital and research, institutions, creativity output, knowledge, and technology.
For the 13th consecutive year, Switzerland is the most innovative economy, followed by Sweden, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Singapore.
This ranking places Italy among the global leaders in terms of diversification of the national industry and the development of innovation in the field of industrial design.
In order to climb the rankings, there are strong signs of improvement for our economy, which we can focus on. It is an upward trend favored, in fact, by the propensity for innovation channeled towards new business models, recognized by investors who have always been fascinated by Italian talent. Innovation, as economist Michael Porter stated, is the central issue of economic prosperity.
