The European Commission published the eleventh edition of the Regional Innovation Scoreboard on 6 July 2023.

Further information:

The Regional Innovation Scoreboard (RIS) is an extension of the European Innovation Scoreboard (EIS), assessing the innovation performance of European regions on a limited number of indicators. The RIS 2023 provides a comparative assessment of the performance of innovation systems across 239 regions of 22 Member States of the European Union (EU) and four non-EU Member States in Europe.

This report follows the same methodology of the 2023 European Innovation Scoreboard. Regions are divided into four main groups - Innovation Leaders, Strong Innovators, Moderate Innovators, and Emerging Innovators. This edition of the scoreboard shows that innovation performance has increased over time in 211 regions out of 239. The most innovative regions tend to be located in the most innovative countries, although some regional “pockets of excellence” are identified in countries with relatively lower innovation performance.
