We summarize the results of the European Innovation Scoreboard, (EIS 2023), including the regional analysis of the EU, Regional Innovation Scoreboard, (RIS 2023) and the global comparison with other countries.
The most extensive analysis, which also includes 11 other European countries, shows that Switzerland is Europe’s innovation leader.
At the global level, the EU has reduced the distance with some of the leaders.
The Regional Innovation Scoreboard complements the EIS and, in my opinion, greatly helps to understand the development of innovation.

Accelerated and abrupt changes such as the current crisis caused by Covid-19 have further catalyzed the urgency of innovation and its necessary financing.

In the 2015 report, Spain is placed with an index of 0.385, 30.6% below the European average (0.555) and 47.8% below the leaders (0.738).
If companies in this environment want to innovate, they envisage still more difficulties.
