The European Commission published the annual European Innovation Scoreboard on 21 June 2021.

Further information:

The annual European Innovation Scoreboard (EIS) provides a comparative assessment of research and innovation performance of in the Member States of the European Union (EU), 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.

The 2021 edition of the innovation scoreboard shows that innovation performance continues to improve across the EU. On average, innovation performance has increased by 12.5% since 2014. There is continued convergence within the EU, with lower-performing countries growing faster than higher-performing ones, therefore closing the innovation gap among them. This year’s report is based on a revised framework, which includes new indicators on digitalisation and environmental sustainability, bringing the scoreboard more in line with the EU political priorities.
