The GFCC is pleased to announce the official release of its annual publications and deliverables, which were launched to GFCC members and fellows at the Global Innovation Summit 2018 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The 2018 edition of our Global Competitiveness Principles focuses on Scaling-up Innovative and Sustainable Businesses. This year’s Best Practices in Competitiveness Strategy features case studies from competitiveness drivers in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Ecuador, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, and the United States. In addition, we have released two annual reports: “Growing,” a report on GFCC accomplishments and initiatives in the past year, and “Speed and Leadership,” our annual report from the University and Research Leadership Forum. In 2018, the Forum also released the reports for its task forces, “Optimizing Innovation Alliances” and “Leveraging Extreme Innovation.” These reports represent two years of work within the Forum and countless dialogues, interviews and inputs from GFCC members and beyond in the fields of innovation, technology and higher education.
