Croatia only 44th by innovativeness
Dropping three places
The latest Global Innovation Index has no good news for Croatia, since the country has lost three places in its ranking since last year. Croatia is now 44th among total 129 countries included in this research and some of its crucial weaknesses are the complexity of starting a business, the small number of foreign students in the country and poor collaboration between business and science. Things do not look good regarding the regulatory framework, rule of law and the availability and use of ICT either.
