This paper shows the spatial variation of regional competitiveness in the European Union (EU), as revealed by the latest 2019 edition of the RCI, together with the most relevant changes over the four editions of the Index. The RCI trend analysis reveals how various regions reacted differently to the 2008 crisis. The first edition of the RCI captured the situation immediately before the crisis, due to the structural delay in the publication of regional indicators by official statistical sources. This sheds light on what made individual regions more able to recover and bounce back from an economic shock: in other words, what makes one region more resilient than another.
