Regional Innovation Monitor
In the context of the objectives set in the European Commission's Europe 2020 strategy and specifically the Innovation Union flagship action, the Regional Innovation Monitor (RIM) project provides a unique platform for sharing knowledge and know-how on major innovation policy trends in European Union (EU) regions.
Based on the work of a network of experts, RIM provides detailed information on regional innovation policies for 20 EU Member States: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
The core of the RIM service is a knowledge base of information on some 200 regions, including:
- An 'inventory' of regional innovation policy measures, policy documents and organisations
- A single access point for good practice dissemination on regional innovation policy in Europe
- An on-line interregional comparison of innovation performance and governance trends by means of the benchmarking tool
- A new communication platform for innovation stakeholders
