— Until the twenty one century, innovation and ideas have been a valuable asset to accelerate the process of technological catch-up, sustain productivity growth and competitiveness. To determine where innovation is standing up, countries and organizations need to adapt innovation capacity to overcome their economies’ defeats for the purpose of boosting the growth and economic performance of the economy. Therefore the aim of our research is to define the innovation capacity first, and then define an approach to assess it base on the countries characteristics. Further, this study highlights the most important indexes to estimate innovation capacity, and uses Porter’s model to facilitate the estimation of the innovation capacity and rank the countries depending on their category.
— Innovation capacity, innovation capacity index (ICI), Porter’s model, research and development (R&D).
