What are the main findings?

As a driver of environmental sustainability and improved quality of life, Research and Innovation (R&I) plays a key role in building a competitive, sustainable and fair Europe. 

A strong role of R&I in a comprehensive policy mix will help Europe increase its R&I performance, including private investments in R&D, address the research and innovation divide between highly innovative regions and moderate innovators, and close the technological gap with global competitors.
