Lazio is a region of central Italy, bordered by Tuscany, Umbria, and Marche to the north, Abruzzo and Molise to the east, Campania to the south, and the Tyrrhenian Sea to the west. The region covers an area of 17,201 (about 6,644 sq. mi) and has a population of 5,879.082, the second most populated in Italy (Eurostat, 2020). The regional capital is Rome, also the capital of Italy. The regional innovation system is strong especially with regard to its public components – universities, national research institutes and the government. The main weakness is the relatively low level of private R&D investments.
