The take-home message is that Canada ranked third in the world for innovative capacity – a composite score based on ratings of intellectual property, intensity, education/workforce, enterprise support and foundations.
Here are the Top 5:
1. USA = 37 points
2. Singapore = 31 points
3. Canada = 29 points
4. Sweden = 28 points
5. Denmark = 27 points

The “intensity” category includes the number of public companies per capita and portion of overall R&D spending used for biotech-related activities.
