Nature Index 


Innovation – the practice of turning cutting edge basic research into inventions with real world application – is the driver of knowledge economies. If innovation stagnates, that spells bad news for the wider economy, a fact which is increasingly salient as the world faces a recession. This Index looks at the current state of innovation around the world as we emerge from the pandemic – what successes can be replicated? How can China’s economy become more innovative? And what do the numbers say about the relationship between academia and innovation?
