Science, Research and Innovation Performance of the EU: A Contribution to the Open Innovation, Open Science, Open to the World Agenda: 2016

 

The key to build a beneficial future for the European Union (EU) is Research and Innovation (R&I). Thus, activities toward these aims are embodied in the Europe 2020 strategy. The EU supports Research and Innovation within Horizon 2020. However, we face key challenges. First, the track record of supplying research results to market must be improved, and the technologies developed in Europe are mostly commercialised elsewhere. Second, Europe creates more scientific outcomes than any other region in the world; however, Europe regularly falls behind on the very best of scientific advancements. Thirdly, the EU punches under its weight regarding international science cooperation and science diplomacy.

Supporting factors and drivers

Bilbao et al. (2016) present a thorough indicator based on analysis of the European Union’s science, research and innovation performance and discuss supporting factors and drivers. The analysis also offers thorough explanations of the European Union’s performance regarding the above-mentioned challenges. The work indicated that the EU’s gap of productivity with the United States has gotten larger following the economic and financial crisis. The authors highlight that the economies of the EU need to be more dynamic and innovation-intensive.
