The Bloomberg Innovation Index offered me a great grabbing opening for Accelerator Frankfurt's 5th wave demo day two years ago, (see minute 16 of the video https://lnkd.in/dAPZWTT):
in 2019, Germany was ranked 2nd.
Germany has now broken Korea’s Six-Year Streak as Most Innovative Nation, according to Bloomberg's current Index, which ranks the world’s 60 most innovative countries using 7 criteria including: R&D expenditure as percentage of GDP, productivity, patent activity, concentration of researchers engaged in R&D per million people, concentration of high-tech companies, and total enrollment in education, regardless of age, as a percentage of post-secondary cohort and the share of the labor force with an advanced level of education.
During these 2 years, Israel has gone from 7th to 5th. I wonder whether Covid related innovation will help boost it up?
May all nations keep researching innovatively and applying it for the global good of people, living things and the planet.
