The Derwent Top 100 Global Innovators awards have been presented annually since 2011 to recognize leading enterprises and research institutions for success in generating innovation. Honorees are selected by Clarivate Analytics after an analysis of intellectual property (IP) and patents using Clarivate’s original methodology. Candidates are evaluated by patent and citation data across four main criteria: Volume, Success, Globalization, and Influence. Among these, Kyocera’s Success and Globalization led to its recognition among the top innovators.
According to Kyocera, its commitment to innovation has resulted in more than 18,000 patents worldwide to date, as well as a deep respect for the IP rights of other companies and institutions.
