Current situation… Scoreboard is able to replicate the methodology used at national level in the European Innovation Scoreboard, using 16 of the 29 indicators used in the EIS for 201 Regions across the EU27 + Norway. There is considerable diversity in regional innovation performances The most innovative regions are typically in the most innovative countries. Regions have different strengths and weaknesses Regional performance appears relatively stable since 2004

Public procurement: Public Procurement Networks (LMI) Situation: Too much focus on initial costs: many key decisions are taken on the basis of the lowest costs instead of quality, safety and environmental criteria and life- cycle costs. Action: Establish a network between public authorities in charge of procuring sustainable construction 1. Innovation policies in the EU Example of the Lead Market Initiative

2. New orientations of Europe 2020 Smart Growth Sustainable Growth Inclusive Growth Innovation « Innovation Union » Climate, energy and mobility « Resource efficient Europe » Employment and skills « An agenda for new skills and jobs » Education « Youth on the move » Competitiveness « An industrial policy for the globalisation era » Fighting poverty « European platform against poverty » Digital society « A digital agenda for Europe »
2. New orientations of Europe 2020 Orientations of the European Research & Innovation Plan Focusing R&D and innovation on societal challenges Climate, resource efficiency, health, demographic change Broadening policy scope of innovation Support for non-technological, design, services, user innovation and innovation in public sector/services Ensuring partnership and coordination Between policies, demand and supply side actions Between EU, national, regional policies, instruments Strengthening innovation chain - from ideas to market Accelerate the path from innovative ideas to new products Stronger demand side - Public procurement, standards, regulations
2. New orientations of Europe 2020 Problems Lack of harmonised regulations for innovations (e.g. type approvals of green vehicles) EU standard setting too slow Public procurers lack incentives, knowledge or scale to benefit from innovation Actions 14. Screen regulatory frameworks linked to Partnerships (2011) 15. Independent review of EU standardisation system (2012)+ anticipate standards in R&D projects 16. Member States to set aside budgets for SBIR type procurements, with EC technical/ financial support (2012) A Single Innovation Market
