Innovation Nation

If you want to live somewhere particularly innovative, consider Boston, Paris or Amsterdam. The Innovations Cities rankings, released last month, rely on measurements of “31 common industry and community segments weighted against global trends. This was reduced to a 3-factor score out of 10 measuring the cultural assets, human infrastructure and networked markets of an innovation economy. The complex process of scoring cities included the analysts assessment of the market confidence of the cities, to form a final city ranking.” In the U.S., New York, San Francisco, Washington D.C. and Philadelphia were also named as “nexus cities” of innovation.
