Regional Innovation Scoreboard 2014
The Regional Innovation Scoreboard (RIS) provides a comparative assessment of how European regions perform with regard to innovation. The report covers 190 regions across the European Union, Norway and Switzerland. The Regional Innovation Scoreboard is based on the methodology of the Innovation Union Scoreboard (IUS). The 2014 Regional Innovation Scoreboard classifies the European regions into four innovation performance groups, similarly to the Innovation Union Scoreboard: There are 34 regions in the first group of "innovation leaders", 57 regions belong to the second group of "...;innovation followers", 68 regions are "moderate innovators", and 31 regions are in the fourth group of "modest innovators".
