The Top 100 Global Innovators consist of companies and institutions that demonstrate the capabilities, consistency, incredible creativity and new thinking that solve pressing challenges and establish new value for the world, Clarivate stated.
|Published annually since 2012, Clarivate's list is based on a twin-track approach to evaluation which has been refreshed and rebooted for 2022. The first track focuses on identifying innovating organizations that pass qualification criteria based on their volume of inventive activity. The second track evaluates all inventions in the Derwent World Patents IndexTM (DWPITM), a comprehensive global collection of curated patent abstracts owned by Clarivate, and scores them on four factors: Influence, Success, Globalization, and Technical Distinctiveness. This year, 35 Japan-based enterprises appear on the list. The complete methodology is available on the Clarivate web site, https://clarivate.com/top-100-innovators/methodology/ .
