NEW YORK, Sept. 18, 2019 /CNW/ -- The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, France's Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) and Germany's Fraunhofer Society have topped Reuters' ranking of The World's Most Innovative Research Institutions, a list that identifies which publicly funded and operated organizations are doing the most to advance science, pioneer new technologies, and power new markets and industries.

Government agencies have long been on the forefront of innovation, conducting long-term and expensive R&D that private companies can find hard to justify to shareholders. The results of government-funded research are part of everyday life, including fluorescent lights, lasers, the global positioning system and the Internet.

Germany leads the list with five institutions in the top 25, followed by France, Japan and the United States, each with four. The eight other countries represented in the ranking (Australia, Canada, China, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan and the United Kingdom) each only have one. Viewed on a regional basis, European institutions dominate the list, with 11 ranked institutions compared to nine in the Asia-Pacific and five in North America.

To compile the 2019 ranking of the World's Most Innovative Research Institutions, Clarivate Analytics identified more than 600 global organizations that published the most articles in academic journals, then reduced that list to only include institutions that filed at least 50 patents with the World Intellectual Property Organization between 2012 and 2017. Then they evaluated each candidate on 10 different metrics, focusing on academic papers (which indicate basic research) and patent filings (which point to an institution's ability to apply research and commercialize its discoveries). Finally, they trimmed the list so that it only included government-run or funded organizations, and then ranked them based on their performance.
