An important milestone of the European Innovation Scoreboard project was the Expert Workshop on contextualisation of innovation performance data in Brussels, 19 February 2018. The Workshop gathered experts from all over Europe for an excellent discussion on how to improve the European Innovation Scoreboard (EIS).

Background papers have been presented by Hugo Hollanders from UNU-MERIT and by Alasdair Reid and Vladimir Cvijanović from EFIS. Some of the issues discussed include additional structural indicators that should be included in the EIS as well as the improvements in evidence-based policymaking.
