  • 3. INNOVATION is the cornerstone ofeconomic growth and success, for both thecompanies that innovate and the countries thatembrace them.For the past several years, talk about innovationhas permeated news stories, corporate boardrooms and government forums. No wonder theterm “innovation” has become a buzz word of the21st century, especially as companies and nationsgrapple with a shifting global economy, financialcrises of unprecedented proportions and a desireto create the next era of opportunity for futuregenerations.These factors, in conjunction with the awarenessat Thomson Reuters of the powerful insights thatcan be gleaned from studying patent information,prompted us to seize the moment and developa program that measures innovation from anunbiased and scientific perspective.Patent activity has always been an indicator ofinnovation. However, innovation comprises muchmore than mere patent filing volume. As such, wedeveloped a range of metrics based on variousfacets of innovation that relate to patenting andscience. The Thomson Reuters 2011 Top 100Global InnovatorsSM are companies that invent ona significant scale; are working on developmentswhich are acknowledged as innovative by patentoffices across the world, and by their peers; and,whose inventions are so important that they seekglobal protection for them.This award acknowledges innovation in its purestform. Being recognized as a Top 100 GlobalInnovator is a prestigious distinction. It confirmsan organization’s commitment to progressinginnovation globally, to the protection of ideas andto the commercialization of inventions.Thomson Reuters Top 100 Global Innovators arethe world leaders in innovation. top100innovators.com 3

An “innovative” patent is defined as the first publication in a patent document of a new technology, drug, business process, etc. In DWPI, these are called “basic” patents. DWPI provides a record of patents published by nearly 50 patent issuing authorities worldwide to enable“Innovation is the primary source of economic a comprehensive picture of the innovationgrowth, job creation and competitiveness in landscape.
