Portugal rises in the European innovation ranking

The European Commission has already launched the new edition of the European Innovation Scoreboard, with data on the progress made by Member States in 2019.

The recently published document demonstrates that the level of performance of countries continues to improve, but Brussels stresses that more effort is needed to avoid “losing ground” in terms of competitiveness and to accompany countries such as South Korea, Japan and Australia , who lead in innovation.

The analysis shows that there is a positive trend in most EU countries, with the level of performance in innovation registering an increase of 8.9% since 2012. Over the past 8 years, the countries with the highest increase have been Portugal, Greece, Lithuania, Malta and Latvia.

Sweden leads the index, followed by Finland, Denmark and the Netherlands. When it comes to change, Luxembourg, once framed as “strong innovators”, moved to the category of “leaders”. Portugal, which had reached the level of “moderates”, rose in the ranking for the category of countries with a strong level of innovation, although it is still below the EU average.

The most recent edition of the European Innovation Scoreboard is marked by the UK’s departure from the EU. However, the European Commission says that the event had a small impact on the overall average performance.
