Innovation Index for the Colombian Departments

Client: Colombian Observatory of Science and Technology (Observatorio Colombiano de Ciencia y Tecnología)

With this project, C230 Consultores worked in the design of a synthetic index to capture data related to the capabilities of the different cities and departments in Colombia, in matters of innovation. This exercise was inspired in the Global Innovation Index, produced by the WIPO, the Cornell University, and INSEAD. The index classifies 143 countries according to its performance in matters of innovation. The challenge is to adapt the methodology so it could be used to reflect the heterogeneous capacities that are present in the different Colombian territories. In 2013, C230 Consultores, through Fundación IDEA, collaborated in the design of a similar index for 90 cities, and the 32 states of Mexico.
