Preparation of the CIS 2022

The CIS based innovation statistics are part of the EU science and technology statistics. Surveys are carried out with two years' frequency by EU member states and a number of ESS member countries. It is commissioned by the European Commission, DG Eurostat.

Co-VAL

Co-VAL, is part of the Horizon 2020 research programme and is funded by the European Commission. The goal of Co-VAL is to provide practical recommendations for how public sector organisations can improve the development and outcomes of their services.

Eco-Innovation Scoreboard (Eco-IS) and the Eco-Innovation Index

The Eco-Innovation Scoreboard (Eco-IS) and the Eco-Innovation Index illustrate eco-innovation performance across the EU Member States. The Eco-Innovation Index shows how well individual Member States perform in different dimensions of eco-innovation compared to the EU average and presents their strengths and weaknesses. The Eco-IS and the Eco-Innovation Index complements other measurement approaches of innovativeness of EU countries and aims to promote a holistic view on economic, environmental and social performance.
