Why Europe praised Belgium for its innovation collaborations

Belgium claims 7th spot on the European Innovation Scoreboard – Europe’s official innovation index. The country achieved a general score that is above the survey average, and reached the #1 spot in terms of innovative collaborations.


European frontrunner
According to the European Innovation Scoreboard, Belgium is the absolute European frontrunner for innovation networks and collaboration. This means that companies in Belgium often link their internal innovations to those of other companies or public organizations. The various industry-oriented research centers in the county only add to this trend, as reported by the European Innovation Scoreboard.

How it works
Every year, the European Innovation Scoreboard determines how innovative the European Union, as a whole, and its members states are. It takes into account various parameters such as: research systems, innovation support, and the employment and economic output resulting from a country’s innovation efforts.

About Belgium and Flanders
With Dutch as its official language, Flanders (Dutch: Vlaanderen) is the northern region of Belgium. The capital of both Belgium and Flanders is Brussels.
