Infographic - Innovation Rankings - USA and the Rest of the WorldThe Local Dynamics of Innovation

Innovation is said to be a key driver of economic growth and prosperity. Vaccinations and sanitation throughout the world have saved millions of lives in the last century. Inventions and technology have fostered increases in industry and productivity that have changed the face of our cities and infrastructures. But what makes a one country more favorable than another?

The Global Innovation Index by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) aims to answer that very question in their 417 page analysis found here: 2013 GII Index. Using an inclusive, horizontal vision of innovation applicable to both emerging and developed countries, this index ranks various countries based upon dozens of factors that impact the environment for innovation.

In our infographic below, we looked to highlight some of this data, particularly focusing on how we stack up here in the United States with respect to the rest of the world when it comes to innovation.
