Nine Taiwanese institutions ranked in Clarivate’s Top 100 Global Innovators 2022 List

Analytical firm Clarivate announced the 2022 Top 100 Global Innovators List on March 31st. In this list, nine Taiwanese institutions were recognized for their innovative capabilities.

These nine Taiwanese institutions are AU Optronics (AUO), Delta Electronics, Foxconn, MediaTek, Quanta Computer, Realtek Semiconductor, TSMC, Wistron, and the government research institute ITRI.

AUO, Delta Electronics, Realtek Semiconductor and Wistron are the first to be on the list. And TSMC and MediaTek are back after a few years.

The company finds it difficult to list because companies need to meet all four factors (quantity, influence, success, globalization) and occur consistently in the activities of qualified companies. I pointed out that there is.

The 2022 list also reflects ongoing trends, such as regional diversity and initiatives for technological development within the industry, increasing the inclusion of automotive companies by 100%. General Motors and Hyundai have joined the list for 2020 and 2021, and Ford, Volkswagen and Kia have joined Honda and Toyota this year, which have enjoyed 11 Top 100 Global Innovator statuses.

In terms of geographic distribution, Japan is the winner, with 35 of the top 100 global innovators taking 35 seats, followed by the United States with 18 seats. Germany and Taiwan each have 9 seats, and France has 8 seats. There are five each in China and South Korea.

Clarivate pointed out that by comparing innovators based on the percentage and level of international inventions (patented ideas in multiple countries or regions), we create a weighting factor for international innovators. The second track of evaluation is to determine the impact, success, globalization, and technical uniqueness of all patented ideas to form the Derwent Strength Index. By multiplying the International Innovator Weighting Factors by the Derwent Strength Index, the result is a Global Innovator Score, from which the Top 100 Global Innovator Rankings are obtained.
