Pune: Global Innovation Index (GII), in its survey on world’s largest inventive clusters, has placed Pune at the 96th position in top 100 clusters. CSIR-National Chemical Laboratory (CSIR-NCL), Pune has contributed significantly by its inventive activities and played a crucial role in propelling Pune into the top 100 clusters of the world, on the basis of data on International Patent Fillings.

Three clusters from India are included in the list such as Bengaluru at 43rd rank, Mumbai at 95th rank and Pune at 96th rank. Bengaluru and Mumbai performed well, having 2,479 and 1,012 PCT fillings respectively. Pune cluster has 1,006 PCT fillings that earned it a position in the top 100.

An empirical approach was adopted for the analysis and identification that proceeded in several stages. The patent data in specified research was described and geo-coded to enable the identification of clusters. Investigation was done on the patents published between 2010 and 2015, under the Patent Cooperation Treaty System, operated by the World Intellectual Property Organisation.

GII focused on the innovation performance of countries and its perspectives on innovation activities. It also covers important characteristics in innovation performance within countries, as innovation activities tend to be geographically concentrated in selected clusters linked to a single city or a set of neighbouring cities.
