Tbilisi. According to the Institute for Development of Freedom of Information (IDFI), the Global Innovation Index (GII) provides a ranking of up to 130 countries by their capacities for innovation. Through up to 80 indicators grouped into 7 categories, GII aims at performing a comprehensive innovation ranking in innovation input and innovation output indices.
“The 2020 GII ranking turned to be positive in terms of an innovation development tendency in Georgia as a whole, however, there was also revealed a slowdown in progress. In particular, results deteriorated in 5 categories, if compared to the last year, which fact eventually had a negative impact on the overall rating of the country. The 2020 Global Innovation Index results make it obvious that there is a stagnation in specific areas in terms of economic and innovation development”.
