RegionalInnovation Scoreboard 2021
his 10th edition of the Regional Innovation Scoreboard (RIS) provides a comparative assessment of performance of innovation systems across 240 regions of 22 EU Member States, Norway, Serbia, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. Cyprus, Estonia, Latvia, Luxembourg and Malta are included at the country level, as in these countries NUTS 1 and NUTS 2 levels are identical to the country territory.The RIS accompanies the European Innovation Scoreboard (EIS), which assesses the performance of national innovation systems. The EIS provides an annual benchmark of the innovation performance of Member States, as well as other European countries and regional neighbours. Regional innovation benchmarks are less frequent and less detailed due to a general lack of innovation data at the regional level. The Regional Innovation Scoreboard addresses this gap by providing statistical facts on regions’ innovation performance.
