Almost all Interreg Europe projects include an important element of regional and economic analysis and benchmarking studies. These activities could be facilitated by using the Regional Innovation Scoreboard (RES) methodology. Furthermore, the tool allows for the selection of specific peer groups or project partnerships and can therefore be easily tailored to meet the precise needs of an Interreg Europe partnership.
The experts of the Interreg Europe Research and Innovation Policy Learning Platform have prepared a Policy Brief on the regional ecosystem scoreboard (RES) methodology.
RES is a statistical tool, designed primarily for policy-makers responsible for regional, industrial, innovation and cluster policies and to help them identify the bottlenecks of the wider regional eco-system that could be targeted through specific policies that may hold back the overall performance of the regional economy. Furthermore, it gives regional players insight on how their regional ecosystem is positioned compared to other peer regions and also businesses an idea in which regional ecosystem to locate best their operations.
