The European Commission published the annual European Innovation Scoreboard on 23 June 2020.
The annual European Innovation Scoreboard (EIS) provides a comparative assessment of research and innovation performance of in EU countries, other European countries, and regional neighbours. It allows policy-makers to assess relative strengths and weaknesses of national research and innovation systems, track progress, and identify priority areas to boost innovation performance.
This Report shows that innovation performance continued to improved across the European Union (EU) and selected partner countries. However, more remained to be done to catch up with global innovation leaders. The results, which cover data from 2019, highlight the opportunities to better coordinate EU innovation policies, help Europe improve its global competitiveness and strengthen the key role innovation plays in overcoming the coronavirus pandemic.
