The European Commission’s published the 2019 European Innovation Scoreboard and Regional Innovation Scoreboard. The data shows that the EU’s innovation performance has been improving for four years in a row. On average, the innovation performance of the EU has increased by 8.8% since 2011. Sweden is the 2019 EU innovation leader, followed by Finland, Denmark and the Netherlands. 

For the 2021-2027 programming period, the Horizon 2020 programme will be replaced by the Horizon Europe programme with 21 billion euros more than its predecessor. The budget will therefore increase to €100 billion.
