Country Reports

This page hosts the ERA-LEARN Country Reports. The Country reports analyse the participation of countries in European R&I partnerships. This draws upon the data available in the ERA-LEARN database and a number of interviews with key stakeholders in the country including individual researchers that have benefited from partnership-supported projects.

The country reports provide an analysis of participation and try to explain the ‘performance’ of a country in European R&I Partnerships within the context of their own national and regional research and innovation systems. Thus, additional sources of information and data are combined in the analysis including, for instance, the RIO (Research Innovation Observatory) country reports; EU Semester national reports; ERA Progress Reports; the European Innovation Scoreboard and Regional Innovation Scoreboard; Regional Innovation Monitor Plus; H2020 Country Reviews; OECD country reviews; OECD, RIO and EUROSTAT statistics; special reports by the Policy Support facility; and MLE (Mutual Learning Exercise) special reports.

The goal of the country reports is to provide an overall picture of a country’s performance in terms of partnership participation, comparing this not only to EU14, EU13 and EU27 averages but also to the performance of a group of comparator countries with similar research and innovation profiles. The hope is that these reports are useful not only for organisations within the country of interest, which may only have a fragmented picture of the situation, but also for organisations in other countries that wish to learn the reasons underpinning the ‘position’ of a particular country and/or learn from the exemplary performance of other countries.
