To what extent do countries’ innovation policies contribute to or harm overall global innovation? Are countries implementing policies such as investing in scientific research and education that produce beneficial spillovers for the entire international community, or are they using “innovation mercantilist” policies that try to help only themselves but to the detriment of overall global innovation?

Please join ITIF as it releases a seminal new report ranking 56 nations on the extent to which their policies either contribute to or detract from global innovation. The event also will discuss what countries, individually and collectively, need to do to enact innovation-based growth policies that move toward a more effective global innovation system that maximizes commonly shared global prosperity and positions humanity to better deal with grand challenges.
