Eindhoven, a city in the Netherlands, has beaten San Diego as the most innovative city in the world.
That's according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, which ranks cities around the world by calculating "patent density," or the number of patents produced per a certain level of residents.
Eindhoven, for example, churned out 22.6 patents for every 10,000 residents, dramatically outpacing the 9 patents per 10,000 residents produced by San Diego.
The top 10 list includes four American cities and 6 European ones. San Francisco follows San Diego at No. 3, while Boston clocks in at the seventh spot and Minneapolis at No. 9.
