Sweden’s Sandvik AB has for the third year running been inlcuded in the recently published Thomson Reuters Top 100 Global Innovators list.

The list identifies 100 corporations and institutions around the world that are at the heart of innovation as measured by a series of proprietary patent-related metrics.

According to Thomson Reuters, the list is developed from “a scientific, unbiased approach to identify the organisations that are dedicated to innovation, committed to protecting patent rights globally, and whose inventions have worldwide influence.”

Olle Wijk, Head of Sandvik Group R&D and Head of the R&D Board stated, “This global designation recognises Sandvik´s focus on technical innovation and our significant investments in research, development and intellectual property.”

“All our engaged and highly qualified employees in R&D and Intellectual Property have a crucial significance for us being on the Thomson Reuters list. Their solid collaboration provides our strong patent portfolio that protects our inventions, and it is the dedication in the whole organisation to finding new ideas and developing products that makes us a world leading high-technology engineering group,” added Wijk.
