Performances of the innovation system

The performances of the Belgian national/regional innovation systems are shown in radar charts, with the innovation dimensions represented on axes. The radar graph gives a synthetic overview of the strengths and weaknesses of Belgium and its regions in comparison with the EU average (indicator values relative to the EU (EU28=100)) and with the neighbouring countries.

Description

  •  13/03/2018

The radar chart presents, for each indicator, the performance of Belgium and its three regions relative to the EU average (EU28=100). This allows to compare, on the same chart, indicators with different measurement units. The performances of the three neighbouring countries are also available by clicking on the selected country below the chart. For each indicator, a value higher than 100 indicates a better performance than the EU average.

The indicators on the chart are selected on the basis of their relevance and the availability of data for the EU average. All these indicators and their definition are available on the database (see "Indicators of the innovation system"). The indicators on the radar chart are the following:

  • Total R&D expenditure (% of GDP)
  • Private R&D financing (% of GDP) (Sources of funds: Business enterprises sector and Private non-profit sector)
  • Government R&D financing (% of GDP) (Source of funds: Government sector)
