Content Type


The 2024 edition of the Science, Research and Innovation Performance of the EU (SRIP) report builds on a wide range of data sources to offer a comprehensive and detailed overview of how the European Union (EU) is performing today in terms of science, research and innovation and analyses the key determinants of this performance. The report provides an extensive coverage of topics, which illustrates the horizontal nature of research and innovation (R&I) activities in the EU landscape.

Each chapter can be read independently, catering to readers with various backgrounds and interests. Whether you are a policymaker, researcher, industry professional, academic, investor, or member of civil society, you should find sections that directly relate to your field. Chapter 0 provides the overarching view of this edition, building on all key messages from the report to stress policy insights for EU R&I, and is a good entry point to this report before exploring more specific chapters. In particular, it highlights how the need for decisive action to make Europe more competitive, green, and fair has further intensified since the 2022 edition of this report.

It details three main challenges for EU R&I today: (i) an underutilised R&I ecosystem facing several obstacles, (ii) deep and persistent R&I divides showing a stratified structure of the EU landscape, and (iii) a technological gap with respect to other regions in the world.
