Chile and Brazil lead the Global Innovation index in the region
An international study released this week ranked Chile first among Latin American countries on the Global Innovation Index (GII), though Chile received mediocre scores in the area of education.
The study, released by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), an international business school, and INSEAD, a research institution, ranked Chile 39th overall, one spot below its ranking last year.
“Chile shows strengths across the board, with the notable exception of human capital and research,’” the report read. “This result is in line with the crisis of tertiary education in the country that was highlighted in 2011.”
The study considered a wide range of factors and drew data from areas including business, education, politics, trade and ecological sustainability. The data was then translated into a number out of 100, according to a report in Merco Press. >>More here
