EC publishes 2019 Regional Competitiveness Index
On 7 October 2019, the European Commission (EC) published the 2019 Regional Competitiveness Index and a Eurobarometer on Regional Policy. Both are intended to feed into the programming process in the Member States to design the future Cohesion Policy programmes for the 2021-2027 EU budget period to evaluate public opinion, identify regional assets and better focus investments.
The Regional Competitiveness Index is updated every three years, thus allowing regions to monitor and assess their development over time and in comparison with other regions. An interactive web tool provides information on how regions score in terms of innovation, governance, transport, digital infrastructure, health or human capital.
