Denmark among world’s elite inventive nations

The Danish confederation of industry, Dansk Industri (DI), has analysed the OECD figures and found that Denmark is among the very top nations in the world per capita for coming up with new ideas and applying for patents in a number of sectors. Denmark is at the zenith globally when it comes to the biotechnological arena, in which it ranks first per capita in terms of applications for new patents. The Danes also lead the way in terms of environmental patents per capita, while they rank third for patents per capita in the medicinal sector. However, Denmark aren’t top of the pops in all walks of invention, particularly regarding patents pertaining to IT solutions for which the Danes rank 10th on OECD’s list of international patents per capita.
