The European Service Innovation Centre, set up by the Enterprise and Industry Directorate-General of the European Commission, has published the European Service Innovation Scoreboard (ESIS) – providing for the first time a comprehensive overview of the impact of service innovation at national and regional level across the EU.
The European Service Innovation Scoreboard presents data on 59 indicators that together capture a diverse range of activities related to service innovation in over 270 European regions. The Scoreboard consists of three scorecards that highlight the importance of service innovation in a region; that can be used as tools in regional policy making to promote structural change; and that capture the general economic performance of a region overall.
The Scoreboard provides the viewer with an opportunity to analyse the performance of any of the 270 regions and to compare it to the EU27 average performance or to the performance of another region in Europe. The European Service Innovation Scoreboard can be found together with the methodology report and the key findings report at http://ec.europa.eu/enterprise/initiatives/esic/scoreboard/index_en.htm
The European Service Innovation Scoreboard will also be discussed during the European Service Innovation Centre Conference to be held in Helsinki, Finland on 9-10 September 2014. More information on the conference will be available at http://ec.europa.eu/enterprise/initiatives/esic/esic-conference/index_en.htm
