Ranking of Slovakia in Global Innovation Index 2020
We have the pleasure to invite you to follow the virtual launch of the 2020 edition of the Global Innovation Index 2020 (GII). The global launch will reveal the latest innovation ranking of economies around the world, and seeks to foster a dialogue with policymakers, academics and corporate leaders on what makes for successful innovation ecosystem.
This year's Gll is dedicated to the theme Who Will Finance Innovation. It sheds light on the state of innovation financing and points to progress and challenges. It also asks how the Covid-19 pandemic is affecting access of entrepreneurs to different forms of innovation finance.
Through its involvement in the Gll, WIPO seeks to contribute to improving our understanding of innovation policies, with a view to facilitating evidence-based policymaking.
The Global Innovation Index (GII) ranks world economies according to their innovation capabilities. Consisting of roughly 80 indicators, grouped into innovation inputs and outputs, the GII aims to capture the multi-dimensional facets of innovation.
Slovakia ranks 39th among the 131 economies featured in the GII 2020.
