We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
This report analyses the geographical (by EU Member State and subnational level) and sectoral distribution of high growth enterprises (HGE). It also examines the contribution of venture capital markets to financing growth and reviews relevant policy instruments across Member States. In addition, the report proposes a HGE indicator framework consisting of 17 standardised indicators. Finally, the report contains country-specific factsheets providing insights on the HGE-related situation, including factors that facilitate or obstruct their development, in 21 EU Member States.
