Our Top 100 Global Innovators program uses a complete comparative analysis of global invention data to assess the strength of every patented idea, using measures tied directly to their innovative power.
To move from the individual idea strength to identifying the organizations that create them more consistently and frequently, we set threshold criteria that potential candidates must meet and then add a measure of their patented innovation output over the last five years.
We do this by using our Derwent World Patents Index™ (DWPI™), created by Clarivate science and engineering expert editors, which acts as the library of human invention and patented problem solving and the Derwent Patents Citation Index™ which focuses on inventions that have been referenced
