Bloomberg L.P. is a New York-based financial software, data and media company. Every year they analyze the most innovative countries in the world and produce a visually pleasing and infographic-heavy report. The countries are ranked according to six criteria: research and development expenses per capita, manufacturing capability, number of hi-tech companies, post-secondary education level, the number of research personnel per capita, and the number of patents per capita.

This year, Ukraine made it onto the list of the 50 most innovative. Let’s take a closer look at the final results (you can also read the full report here).

Ukraine’s overall rank

Ukraine made a giant leap from last year, moving from 49th on the list to 33rd, breezing past Hong Kong, Turkey, Iceland, and several other innovative countries.

Other criteria

Ukraine landed at the top of the list for a few individual categories. High-quality education is essential for innovation. The good news is that Ukraine ranked 5th in the post-secondary education category. The number of patents per capita is another influential factor that shapes a country’s innovation level. Ukraine’s result is also quite high in this category: it ranks #10.
