ISO 9001 Certification Used as a Measure in Global Innovation Index

The Global Innovation Index (GII) provides detailed metrics about the innovation performance of 127 countries and economies around the world. The index is the result of a collaboration between Cornell University, INSEAD, and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The GII has gained international recognition, establishing itself as both a leading reference on innovation and a ‘tool for action’ for decision makers. It recognises the link between innovation as an engine for economic and social growth in an increasingly knowledge-based global economy.


One of the 81 indicators used to measure a country’s innovation is the number of accredited certificates to the quality management system standard, ISO 9001.
