Sweden leads the 2020 European innovation scoreboard. The annual league table compiled by the European Commission shows the EU is outperforming the US and China, but needs to do more to catch international innovation leaders South Korea, Australia and Japan.
“This year’s scoreboard shows that the EU is already a good place to do innovation, but we need to further step up efforts across the EU to find global solutions to contain the virus, and at the same time, help Europe’s recovery from the crisis,” said Thierry Breton, Commissioner for Internal Market. “More than ever, innovation is important since it lies at the heart of our efforts to beat the Coronavirus pandemic.”
At the top of the pile, Sweden was followed by Finland, Denmark and the Netherlands.
