Innovation & Creativity Access Barometer 2019

December 22, 2019

Innovative and creative output and access are inseparable and must go hand in hand. Across seven editions of the U.S. Chamber International IP Index, the Global Innovation Policy Center has measured the effectiveness of national intellectual property (IP) laws that play a critical role in determining a country’s capacity for innovative and creative output.

This new Innovation and Creativity Access Barometer examines the flip side of the coin, assessing the policies that speed or impede citizen’s access to those new products, services, and technologies. Together, these two benchmarks tell a holistic story of the property rights and rule of law infrastructure that will determine innovative and creative success in a 21st century knowledge economy and the future of our global middle class.
