Regions are an appropriate level for stimulating innovation. Many regional governments have important competences and budgets in the field of innovation. Their geographical proximity facilitates the acquisition, accumulation and use of knowledge. Regions’ performance depends not only on that of enterprises and research institutes but also on interactions between different stakeholders, enterprises and organisations, whose knowledge and know-how build up over time. The Regional Innovation Scoreboard helps to understand innovation in the regional context and provides some statistical facts on regions’ innovation performance.
