Innovation Union Scoreboard 2011

Mar 1, 2012

The Innovation Union Scoreboard (IUS) 2011 was published in February 2012 including innovation indicators and trend analyses for the EU27 Member States, as well as for Croatia, Iceland, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Norway, Serbia, Switzerland and Turkey. It also includes comparisons based on a more reduced set of indicators between the EU27 and 10 global competitors.
The IUS 2011 distinguishes between 3 main types of indicators and 8 innovation dimensions, capturing in total 25 different indicators.

The U.S. is performing better than the EU27 in 10 indicators, in particular in Tertiary education, R&D expenditure in the business sector and Public-private co-publications. In R&D expenditure in the public sector and Knowledge-intensive services exports the EU27 has a small performance lead. Overall there is a clear performance lead in favour of the U.S. but this lead has been declining, in particular since 2009.
